I have no idea if nail polish is flammable...

I have a better idea though, buy some Krylon Fusion plastic paint, and use the cap. Spray into the cap to get a small puddle of paint, and use a brush and paint the ram air inlet on top of the radiator. :cheers:

Whoa, really? That would be some crazy scheme.

I have a pic of the Ram Air inlet somewhere, on the BB though. I already have an idea what it'll look like. Very bright. :cheers:

Nail polish probably would not be a good idea because it would chip very easily or ware off very easily go with what Chris said as it will last longer and we know it won't damage anything

I forgot, Em...you still have the stock ram air box. :cheers: what's that look like again? :blink: my old one is in pieces in my room somewhere.

But that would be A LOT to paint, lady. I dunno...

Glad to see you and Brendon back together!
