If you don't get one, and use a 120 grit flapper wheel. That will allow you to get all the way in there, and in the small corners on the sides where it widens out use a small sand paper wheel attachment.
After you done all you can with the Dremel attachments get in there with 400 grit, 1000 grit and 1400/1500/2000 grit by hand, and use it in the wet sand mode to. The results are phenominal. I didn't get to go to this extent on any SC I've done yet, but I did the flapper wheel, 120 grit sand paper wheel, and 1000 grit by hand and that puppy was phenominal. There were a couple small spots that could be a little better, but had I had another 1-2 hrs to give to the project I would have had that puppy PERFECT.

Also, it appears your SC inlet is not offset as much as the pics of Andrew'*, Silverbullet'*, or either of my 99/00 GEN III'* and 04 GEN V. 96BonnevilleL67'* SC inlet was very well aligned from the factory to, which makes me wonder about 96-97'* being better aligned than the 98+.

Looks good, although the amount of material seems small in comparison to the Hulkspeed ones I picked up in the spring.

They did nothing to build up the chin area and properly port them.
