Last York Pic(I promise)

I had a chance to wheel with new OBA air system yesterday. It worked great. It has no detectable leaks, and didnt cycle once all day. Even got to use the air impact wrench in the driveway before I left. I activated the ARB maybe 10 times durring the day and it appears to be working well (its regulated at 90 psi). I used a combination of Teflon tape(4 tight wraps in th direction of the threads, going on) and pipe thread sealing compound. This is the same way I have done my plumbing in the past with very good results. I got to doll it up a little with some shiny braided line and Annodized AN fittings I got from my brother(which he originally got from me), they(the fittings) are all scratched up, but look great(almost too nice) for a trail Jeep.
Im actually very proud of well the whole engine bay came out throughout the swap. Everything looks good, has a nice layout, and is accessable. Every wire single wire crimp has been replace with solder and shrink tube.
So here is one last pic of the set up in its final configuration(well actually I still have to install the GT 40 Cobra Manifold and plennum, but Im tired of wrenching).
Heres the pic, what do ya think?

Your pride in the completion(are jeeps ever really complete?) of the instalation is righfully yours. So what if the engine bay looks almost to good to be in a trail jeep. The most important part is that it works and you did it yourself.

If you don't like the way I'm living, you can just leave this long-haired country boy alone.
