Just let me know and I will make sure there is plenty of food in the refrigerator and the sheets are changed in the guest rooms. My wife loves entertaining guests.

I have dogs so if you have allergies, you have been warned. No cats.
Your wife entertains, eh? KIDDING. Lol.

Sounds like a lot of fun but I've got other obligations. Nice run though, south trhu Memphis,Jackson, McComb. West thru Baton Rouge, 10 over to grab Djmba then a short ride to your place.

Reminds me of the Tri-State shooting matches I attended on occasion. Just the reverse direction. I know you would be here if were closer.

May have to look you up if I am up that way again.

Happy Holidays!

Just finished polishing the other pre turbo pipe. They look damn sexy if I do say so myself

The reflections are a little blurry in the pictures but are just like a mirror in person.

WOW! Did everyone just find a write up on Google on how to polish? I really have no clue on how to do it but don't know how. I have some scrap parts off of prior project cars to play with and all I know is you start with 120 or better grit sand paper. Anybody have a link or short notes on how to do it? what tools needed and compounds? I wanna play too!!!!

Just start with something like the 120 grit to get out all of the scratches and stuff. I went from 150-220-400-800 then wet sanded with 1500. Maybe not the best grit progression but believe it or not it was all I could find. I would say go up to a wet 2000 and it'll polish a little easier. Get some polish and a terry cloth and polish away.

Tools required:
Sandpaper (duh)
Sanding pad (optional)
Terry cloth(s)
Polish (duh)
Patience (a must)

Cool man thanks! I am fighting so hard the urge to polish the crap out of everything I can get my hands on, I love the look. But my engine bay is absolutely stock to the eye and by God it is going to stay that way. I have done some scotch bright on my intake and am going to pull that, lower, CAS, water housing, fuel rails and a few other things out when I send my TB off and injectors off for rebuild and clean the PISS out of them. If I can get them looking brand new then they will go back in unmolested. Someone had a go at one of my front calipers tho and I am going to try and polish those until I can afford a 2G/TT upgrade. I want to polish those and hat them with some high temp clear coat. I have an intercooler and housing from my old SVO that is toast from when the Garrett took the top of the car off so I'm going to practice on that. It was such a cool piece that I saved it from the side of the freeway and I looked at my car that was nearly ripped in half. (Never buy a shady turbo car in cash at night that has a turbo the size of a turkey in it, most fun 6 weeks ever tho till it exploded).

Wow thanks! I have a place to start now. Looks like my kinda job too. Hours of repetition and no bolts to snap off. I can see me spending weeks on my calipers with a big effing smile on my face, love detail work. I do know I'm gonna have to spray it with high temp clear otherwise Texas weather will make it black in seconds......hhhhhhhh humidity, SATAN!!!!
