Re: Polished manifold.... now what?

wow barry that turned out heaps better than i imagined, when i saw u take the grinder to it i had my doubts. But once agains your elite metal polishing skills and dedication has really brightened up your engine bay. Now with your polished alternator and manafold and trippy blue under drive pully's all u need to do is stick back on ur chrome rocker covers and it will be all complete.
