Thanks. The only disappointing thing is the porosity of the casting. On top of the curves of the bananas there are these tiny holes. Nothing chronic but I figure that if I try to get them out I could expose even more! Reckon if i did yours I'd run out of skin on my fingers. It's a bit like a 1:1 ratio i.e. 1mm off the manifold, 1mm off skin comes off as well :yeah:

Its starting to look nice well done and you get the satisfaction of knowing you did it yourself.

Thanks, it looks almost like a GM promo shot of their up and coming 5 litre fuel injected V8 (sorry too many beers !). At approx 12 hours per inlet manifold they wouldn't be selling very many :p

Thanks man, must admit with just a bunch of basic tools …..



it came out pretty good. As I said before pity about the porosity of the casting, but the overall effect is what I was after.

Cheers
