Re: Boss Color Coded Shaker

I think it looks good actually, more "original equipmentish" and not as "bought at supacheap semi ricerish" as a black one.

Re: Boss Color Coded Shaker

Don't forget the original shakers were black and fitted to one of the horniest models around. I wonder what people would have said back then if people colour coded them. I know we are down the track from the 70's, but good is good. Black takes us back to the original look, which is very impressive. Colour coded looks smooth. Another decision to make.

Re: Boss Color Coded Shaker

I've seen a black one in real life and I love it. Never even knew colour-coded ones existed but I personally prefer the black one... but since I don't own a BOSS powered car it's irrelevent!

hi 3toed, for me seeing it in real life made a difference, looks so much better when you can see it on the car live, swayed my opinion on it..

Re: Boss Color Coded Shaker

Black or coloured, I love it. It most probably depends on the colour of the car and if it has the black stripe package or not. I think the colour version makes it look more integrated and modern, but in some ways spoil's the mechanical rawness of it all.

Re: Boss Color Coded Shaker

Not a huge fan of it, that rubber strip makes it look tacky and ricerish. I think a shaker could go well with the BA's but it needs to be a different shape to this particular one. But thats a top effort for giving it a go and im sure the owner loves it.
