If it is any consolation Adam I LOVE the pewter I have since my vote wouldn't really count. Looks very good under the hood without being out of place looking. Flows with the car very well. I will post pics later this evening so others can see it if you like. Still need to do my review

Here are some cell phone shots I took real quick of the Camber/Caster plates and Stress Bar in Pewter. Personally I really like the way it sorta blends in. The setup is quite impressive looking in the engine bay without the need for bright colors. I like all the color options that are currently available and I had a tough time deciding which to go with at first but I am glad I changed to Pewter at the last minute. All the other Ground Control bits and pieces are red and yellow on my setup with the exception of Pewter on the rear shock mounts.

@AZFA20 Thanks for posting! I was concerned about the GrimmSpeed hood struts coming into contact with this setup.

No problem, glad I could be of unintentional help in regard to the hood struts :happy0180: (love the Grimmspeeds by the way ).

Ooooh! wrinkle black would be nice with the little machined edges like all the others. Not sure how well that would work though because the mating surfaces are pretty precise so the texture of the wrinkle would have to be avoided in those areas I would assume. A couple more steps would be required for the prep I am sure.

I have the GrimmSpeed hood struts and love how effortless it is to accesss the engine bay (first appreciated it when putting in the Perrin inlet tube).

I second the wrinkle.

I voted for blue, but pewter was a close second. Blue because it would be nice in the WRB engine bay
