Hey guys I threw together a video showing this a little better. I have it on my dizzy machine now and it seems to work fine. When I get a little more time I will figure out the rotor phasing, but I'm waiting on warm weather for that. Here's the video:

So I finally got around to phasing the cap! It's pretty much ready to test - less any clean up and initial etups I want to make - oh and a REALLY cool label!! I can't call it finished without a mega cool label...TBC

With my buddy Smokin' Joe's help - we laser etched some distributor tags. Still working some bugs out on those, but here's what I have so far:


I like the STARK BLACK color better - so far the family all like the one without the thick grey border.

Any opinions???


Thanks, Jacin

There is no "spark" in the left hand label. The high contrast label on the right gets my vote.

I think the stark black will stand out better. If you're going through
the effort of making them, make them visible! Maybe paint the "Atomic"
yellow or red...... ??

I think the one with the gray border has a more vintage look. They both look great though, so you probably can't lose either way.

I like the more readable one on the right as well, but I also agree that the left one looks more 'vintage'. They're both pretty sweet.
