Custom marble finished intake scoop

Was slow at work today so I dipped my intake scoop in a black & blue marble hydrographics pattern. Was going to do carbon fiber, but figured I would try out something different...seems like everyone is sportin cf nowadays..

I think if you did the engine cover, and all of the other plastic pieces, it would look much better/unique. But with just that alone, it looks out of place.....

This reminds me of the top gear episode where they built houses inside of minivans! I love it!

No but seriously. Why the hell are you guys all flaming him? It's not like he painted it with sparkles, and put a big fucking Hello Kitty sticker on it. Creativity, come on!

Not exactly my taste, but I don't think it looks bad.

Very clever idea and it would be cool to see some other engine bay parts done like that.

Could you do a red/black marble combo instead of blue/black combo?
