I really like 3rd one but the 1st and 2nd could work very well too depending on the style of the build.

Can we see a photo of the entire car? just to get an idea of how it would fit in with the entire build?

Are you looking to print and film/water dip these? or custom paint?

3rd one is dope. Please don't do either of the first two.

I posted in iND's ESS thread about doing a retro style. I think it would look bad a$5

I know someone has put the "BMW M Power" plate on the center of their ESS manifold. I'll try to find the picture.

I also think less is more but this is my thought... I like the clouds the best of all of them. But do it in black and white. A deep dark black base coat with airbrushed clouds all over as if the manifold is reflecting the sky when the hood is open. The more the clouds are ghosted, the sicker it would look... imho.

something along these lines...

If you can get a high res version of exactly what you want you can simply get the image done with Water Transfer on top of a base color.

Sometimes simple is better. My favorite is the paint splatter manifold on the purple M3.

Here's a few pics. Some of the mani's are overboard, I know that. I'm simply just tossing out ideas, and seeing what looks good and what doesn't =D


Car is Satin Pearl w/ bronze TE37's

Can you work with this? I'm really interested to see how it would look now. This isn't as dark as i was thinking but maybe you know how to darken.
