No point getting black when you have that already.. now a carbon fiber black..nice.

I think red would suit... i would do red if they made a kit for the 156

Re: To samco it or not?

I'm not sure would the red suit the rest of the car it's all black really. So I'm thinking shiny black would look well.

Re: To samco it or not?

Black all the way once it is available. Not a big fan of the blue. It's too bright for an engine bay I feel, maybe it'd look fine if the car matched up. Black for you I reckon Damien.

Your's looks cool But as you say I think black will look and suit the car better as the rest of the car is that.

I think the black is the way forward it would be a nice lift for the engine I think.

Re: To samco it or not?

I got stupid clothes off the mother waste of time and other crap like that. I want another shed in the back or rather the old man said he would get one but there's meant to be no room. I was going to do work on Mikes wrecked engine just to pull one apart for the craic.

You ever see my car??

The red is nice but your car is red which helps.

Re: To samco it or not?

I've got red hoses on my black 155. Looks good and is pretty simple and easy. Go for it!


P.S. They don't do a direct fit kit for plastic topped twin spark 146s.

Most of the hose companies can make a one off hose.

Yeah, I bought the kit to originally go on the 146 but only one of the hoses would match up. You can buy plenty of universal bits to DIY it though.

I'll try and get some pics up, got a black and red cam cover as well

Cheers I'll get onto them myself I think, it's strange that they have the 155 done first and then nothing for the 146 they are basically the same underneath.

Ya I might get some universal bits and send them the lengths and see what they say.

Damit you have all the same ideas as me I wanted to paint my cam cover too black and leave the letters red I'm thinking it will set it off well
