    I just received and installed my Pacific Blue radiator shrouds that I bought on ebay for $60 plus $12.95 shipping. They are a much darker blue than the color in the pic that the vendor sent to me which made me most pleasantly surprised. He has one set remaining.

    The paint job is flawless except for a bit of masking on the inside of the lower shroud. I left the chrome lower on only because I didn't want to lay on the cold shop floor to change it out too.

    It's a not a perfect match but close and to me looks so much better than the chrome.

    I'll get a better pic when we have a nice sunny day, hopefully soon. Shrouds.JPG

    Wow you have one of the fastest Rockets a blue one.

    They are the fastest as you don't see them in groups of more than one usually.

    The blue does make it more aerodynamically slippery, making some costly performance enhancements almost unnecessary. And adding the blue radiator shrouds made the air just slide ride over them. It was positively thrilling.

    And now that I've just mounted my oil tank embellisher, I have three more pistons to upgrade power.
