Well I've kept this hidden for a while. Took a long time but I think it was worth it. Tell me what you think:

Old and ugly:




New hotness:

It is kind of a satin/flat black. More flat I guess, especially after the heat got to it. But it still looks good.

I like the Frigidaire logo under the SC in the second pic. Looks like it belongs there...

not when mine is starting to come off :(

it looks like crap right now. and Willwren always talks about how you should not just put any paint on them. Need a special type

But back on topic

Oh, but it is. Just to give you a hint, the inlet is ported to 78mm. Looking for a new TB now . That'* a different story though.

Polished with about 2 1/2 dremels, lots of sand paper, and a ton of elbow grease. It sucked really, but you can't argue with the results. There is a reason people charge so freaking much to do this.
