I noticed this when I picked up the car in April, but had forgotten about it. See attached picks for a better description of the problem. I may be using improper terminology, but it looks like some fluid, perhaps fuel, leaked or is leaking around the tube that goes between the fuel rails (up and over the SC). See pics attached. Any one else have these stains, and/or know what may have caused them?

Thanks BroodNV, glad to hear others have these stains as well, I guess....

:bandit:

I might be getting a little obsessive about this car, it's a disease....:cowtounge:

I've got it too. Very ugly. Need to replace them with something that looks better.

That's better; but for me the engine work starts this winter.......First the suspension (if I can get the accountant to cut loose with just one more K or so this summer), then the additional ponies over the winter..... I'm still scaring myself with what I've got now. :roller:

Those are purdy. I don't like chrome so much, so I would probably go with the black...possibly have them powder coated blue (because blue is faster).

I'm not a fan of chrome, either. I thought these looked better than the black when installed.

I'll let your color comment slide, as you obviosly have issues that should be addressed by a professional.

Orf, what do you think of the Vogtland lowering springs for these cars? See my thread J&M Suspension Products for details of what I'm doing. I'm looking for feedback from the usual suspects. :)

The Evo fuel rails are a nice product, but $429 seems a bit steep. Does anyone know of other outfits that offer a good fuel rail for the GT500?
