    Reminds me of a VW Jetta that I used to pull the alternator off every evening for about 2 weeks and hand polished the aluminum. Looked like crome when I was done. Amazing how much time you have before you have kids and a career!

    I would rather get it powder coated...... Way to time consuming.

    I see a lot of grinding, but no polishing.

    Man you guys are very encouraging. I polished it after words. Didn't think people wanted to wait around that long to see that part. After I polished it I sprayed it with with clear coat So far so good. Sure beats the heck out of the stock intake manifold look.
