Truth be known i like the red, so i think i'll go with that. Might do the APS in black though.... dunno yet.
Heres what 4 hours with a die grinder on a manifold looks like.
Absolutely **** job to do. Its messy and awkward. Ive removed a few lugs that i wont need and have removed practically every casting mark i can get to. I also cleaned the sharp edges where the manifold runners are cast. This will provide a smooth area for the inlet hose to run along.
Now for some bead blasting, Nitro Moors and then a fresh coat of paint
