    I cant decide what color to bake the lower intake on my fresh 306. right now im using flat black and anodized silver. should i bake both intake and plenum silver or do the intake black and plenum silver...........
    The valve covers and pulleys are silver, i did the alt and timing cover black. Some high temp stickers finished off the valve covers. IMAG0218.jpg IMAG0220.jpg IMAG0221.jpg

    well i got the oven for free. the wai poder gun is a summit brand on ebay they run $60. then i got a harbor frieght sand blaster, kettle style. powder from eastwood on ebay. oh and a couple cans of brake clean non-clorinated to rinse the parts. not ideal but cheap and the outcome was great. ill never paint another engine part. next im gonna use chrome then a translucent black clear, should look killer

    here you go. cant show amps but it has 3000 rms watts behind the box. i closed in the hoodscoop with a baffle and made a airbox for it. my ram air desiegn more to say 'yeah i did that.' a full badge delete i even filled in the bumper for a smooth look. led tail lights, the cluster is a unit from summit, i had to gu.t a broken factory cluster and fab up a plexiglass cover which i trimmed into place, i blacked out the area behind and around the display for a better look. oh and a door handle delete done right i cut em out and welded in patches. the door curves but the handle area is flat so i skimmed the door with the best filler i could find and blocked till the cows came home. the door locks actually work as handles. turn the key and it pops open. i even didthe top i WILL NEVER DO MY OWN TOP AGAIN!!
