    Thanks guys. I really wanted to get a shot of both of them at a better angle with the giant Boeing that was off at another angle but there was just to much going on to be able to get it. Maybe one of these days....

    Started on the water injection today. I ran the line from the pump in the trunk to the engine bay and made a bracket to mount the tank in the trunk. I just need to powder coat it and ill epoxy it in place as its a nice tight fit.

    I still need to get hardware but it fits really well.

    Nice bracket for a professional look. The water injection kits are nice.

    Thanks, I still need to clean the paint and interior of the trunk but hopefully it will come out nice.

    Sandblasted and powder coated the water injection brackets as well as the wiper arms. They look pretty good.

    Cleaned up the interior of the trunk and scrubbed it all out. I then epoxied the Water injection tank mount in as well as studs for the pump. I plan on painting the interior of the trunk with bed liner but I'm undecided on gray or black for the color. Any feedback would be great.

    If you do black its gonna look like a huge dark void, do it gray my opinion...

    I was leaning towards gray and you bring up a really good point. Gray it is and I'm going to order up the paint. Thanks for the feedback!
