not sure yet if it should be called the MQ3430 or the MQ1290 but I finally got a hold of the final (3rd) mq430. I got a piece of an unused heat sink on here a year or more ago and had it cut in half so I can make amp links out of them. Hopefully this next to the ms1k will be enough. But now the most important question, what color should I make it? I just sent my stuff off for nickel plating and that would be amazing for sure but $$$$, I also thought about franking them. Grey just seems a little boring if I am going to have to powder it.

not sure why I can't post pics tonight...

Finally got it figured out. I need to do some work to get the links to sit perfectly flat against the amps because of the screws but only 44" long.

So any ideas on colors?

I am open to opinions and would love to hear other ideas. I like these myself.

I'm not a person who enjoys flashy colors. I prefer a simple understated look and enjoy the OEM gray color. :)

That being said, out of your four options, I like the Fire Lights one best.

I would do something like black with metallic gold flakes with gold end plates. The writing on the end plates being black. Thats what I would do. Black and classy.
