The polished covers are beautiful, and i love the gold engine !

Gets me thinking, is there a gold coloured VHT paint available??

That 'gold' looks almost identical to the colour the original Honda paint turns mafter it gets hot, oiled and old.  8)   
Kinda like an artificially aged picture of someone who 'went missing' then turned up 30+ yrs later. I like it, not too overdone  ;)

Thanks guys, I'm pretty happy with it.

And you nailed it PJ, it's the exact color I was going for. When I tore the engine down and saw that gold color inside the upper crankcase, I knew that was what I wanted for the entire engine. :)

I guess it's a custom colour then? Sounds expensive but with all the work your doing, probably just another drop in the ocean  ;) 8) I really do like it though. you may start a new trend for 360's / Honda's  ;D

It's not really a custom color, I had selected something very close from Prismatic Powder's online resource gallery, then took that to my powder coater ...that paint was glossy though and would need a follow up application of a matte clear coat, which is hard with the fins (to get even coverage), so they hit up Prismatic for some similar paint chips. Looking at those in the sun, it was easy to pick this one ...a nice low-gloss finish in the perfect color. So not "custom" just time consuming. I'm in no hurry on this build, I just want it right.
