    OK, just making conversation here. There isn't really much available to dress up the slant six. With that in mind, to what extent have you gone to make your slant unique?
    I'll start it out with a pic of my engine.
    [​IMG]
    What you see is hand polished aluminum (water outlet), wrinkle black & chrome accents (valve cover and timing cover), custom pulleys and alternator mount, modified big block dipstick/tube, custom aluminum throttle cable mount. Polished stainless steel fasteners. Probably more that I can't remember.
    Let's see the creative side of some slanters.

        I like what you did on the motor mounts. I did the same on mine.

          Leanne, I did my cover like your red ones with silver ribs. Nice.

              Nothing pretty but I loved the split exhaust and the little slant enjoyed the 80 degree air I put to it, Leanna did powder coat wrinkle finnish to my valve cover, battery moved to the trunk, and I did change out the bad ecu and put a plate there and mounted my coil with it ..

                  image.jpeg Or for some real eye candy, I don't think anything can beat a set of triple DCOE45 Webers!

                  Thanks to Leanna for showing off some of the slant stuff she did for me; the Offy valve cover (which is destined to go on the slant in my wagon), the triple SU intake (which I eventually sold along with the rebuilt and matching HIF6 SU's, and the stock valve covers done in a custom finish.

                      How about this? Thinking of finding a mid-20s Dodge bucket and running this on a slant with no hood
