We really need to have RD start some classes on bullying around here. I really hope @HydroSkreamin doesn’t keep being mean and bullying me around now!!
Pretty bolts.

Not sure what came out better my needle nose or these AN washers.

All done now, came out sexy and happy as all get out that @HydroSkreamin saw these and pointed it out to me.

Than cleaned the intake with Xtreme Speed Mist, followed up with their Spray on Ceramic coat, Ultra Mist.

Gotta get a few 5/16” next for the coolant tank and the throttle linkage.

Don't mean to point out the elephant in the engine bay but it's not shiny and doesn't look right between your shiny cap and bolts.

It’s not all that practical, no one sells one done, and it actually is a mount for the coolant tank, relay box, and the heat exchanger. So not only is it a serious pita to remove finding a chrome isn’t easy these days, so it could be powder coated but even then a lot of work.

Coolant tank

The throttle bracket bolts were a little trickier, as they held on a piece of raw stainless, well an hour on the buffer later, i think i could get better but need different rouge as well another wheel to really cut it smoother then get a show shine, but it’s hardly visible so only one who will notice is HS 🤣

Hahaha it appears hydro and I are chipping away! If anything with all this polishing you've done you have gained like 2 more mph's on the top end and cool points too! 😁
