I should have whetted my wrap, and I should have worn gloves and a long sleeve shirt!!

I also found out the hard way that I should have wrapped like the OP did so that I could do two short wraps and then the two full length wraps down to the collector.

I used 73 feet of the 75 feet of sickspeed wrap I ordered. I sealed it post wrap with VHT clear Flame Proof header wrap sealer.

This is what it looks like, I wont have other pictures until I get the car back together!!!





I didn't go all the way to the collector because my car is lowwwww! and that would have gotten scraped of at some point!

Nubs were gone when I got it. I didn't even think about them until looking this thread over!

Well my valve cover is red, and my soon to be added Saleen sway bar is red, Im also adding red over blackish SVT door panels. I just ordered a red gates timing belt. I have red bushing kits and will be adding more RED!!!! LOL

I love red and wanted my header to stand out! So I'm painting more stuff red as I go and more parts I add will be red.

Maybe.... I just found out that VHT has flaming red header paint! And besides Im secure in my masculinity! I can handle wearing a little pink.

The "other" comment made was why no red and green! So I could be festive!! LOL
