Sophie already has a DIY write up somewhere. i just followed that.

i just used tons of sand paper, elbow grease then mothers polish. i started with a 80grit then went all the way up til 1500grit. im happy with how it came out. its not shop perfect but it'll do.

Looks good Ray. I bet all those nooks and crannies took some time to do.

Looks great man. This takes so much time and effort. I got all of my parts down to a brushed aluminum look and then said F-it and left them at that :bigSmile: +rep

thanks Al. as you know, its alot of work. the turbo was actually easier than i thought. i did it the lazy man way. i left it in the car and just went to work on it with the paper.

i think the intake mani and the y pipe took the longest. maybe 3 days right there. but once you have down to brushed it only takes a little more from there. i think the key is to start with a really rough grit. i like starting with a 80grit then go up in steps from there
