Yep beautiful floater!! It amazes me even to this day how much the "little" stuff kicks the wallet's ass. Nickel and dime just isnt the correct term anymore.

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

And to get rid of the bluing on your headers use the pic below. I brought it with my cleaning supplies for my boat but ended up getting to kit and forgot to show you how it works :)
