Default Now I can't decide...

So I got my goody package from Steve at Vararam, WOW did he hook me up! Not only did he send me the smooth black lid, but he also sent me an orange lid and a filter cleaning kit! Thanks again Steve!!!

But now I'm torn...I just set the orange lid on top of the black one and I'm kinda digging it

I also have a custom badge on the way from rebadge that is really going to add some WOW factor, I have a pic of the design, but you guys are gonna have to wait til I get it, then I'll post pics...

Help me decide!

Here's the black:




And the Orange:

Gotta like the orange. Most of the Mopar Muscle cars from the '60s and early '70s. I'm sure you could even get some of the old air lid decals from yearone or Mopar Performance for a real retro look.

orange is nice but you need to match a few other (yellow) pieces in there to go along with it otherwise stay with the black

Thats the plan with the badge Nate @ Rebadge is making me, definatly an old school throwback to the muscle era!

Yeah, I plan on it, thinking if I go with the orange, I'm gonna get the 392 half covers, paint them up along with the valve covers and maybe a few other things...
