    Wondered this myself when thinking about doing mine.

    Loving the inlet manifold. Where you get this done? I'm thinking of getting mine done in black, along with the rocker cover.

    Looks very good bro. Im planning on doing mine and my rocker cover at the same time.

    Is it not possible to tap up the parts on the throttle body which you dont want to spray

    Ye theres a place not far from me that dips them so you can a polished finished on them. I thought about the polished looked but to many people have done it.

    Il prob do something similar to yours but feel like being completely different and having like a really shiny silvery/blue metallic colour with loads of flakes in it. May sound silly but it think it would look nice in a clean engine bay.

    thats what i thought to many polished bays about lol mines been done in antrahcite its a really glossy finish but my pics have come out **** and the bay needs a good clean 1 to many grubby hand prints

    i think that will look good mate and it will be different
