Ok this was the saturday project. started at around 4.. finished sometime after midnight.. but took our time and did it right.. check it out.

the car right before we started..



My dirty ass motor.. lots of oil on the VC



no more intake or plug wires.




my dirty ass vc before i started working on it.



look MAA No sludge..



Me doing a little wet sanding



a little dirty :(



ready to rebuild



jon cleaning the gasket surface area..



after about 1/2 hour of messing with the VC.. this is what it looks like





and the finished product..




and the car that now shares a garage with mine


i've already added rims, tires, exhaust, intake, swaybars, Fstb,springs/struts, and carbon fiber dash kit to that prelude. it's my brothers GF's car.

I never heard of wetsanding with carb cleaner. I might have to give taht a try, I've been wanting to polish my front VC.

I will vouvh for the Mother's polish though. That's what I used to use on my polished stockers when I had them.

more info!

yeah, I can vouch for that stuff! I was there!!! I was amazed though at the instant results. I've done a lot of underhood engine polishing on the SE (look for pics soon!) but it all took a lot longer with me using other products. So, Kristen and I went out and bought Mothers after that weekend! :s5
