Well, I started to sand my trickflow and its a killer on the arms. Im thinking of jsut getting it done professionally. Anyone know of a local guy?

The damn trickflow has is poorly casted and has tons of pits in the metal. I have been sanding for 4 hours by hand and still havent finished the top half with 60grit.

I worked on my Edelbrock RPM for 25-30 hrs before it started looking decent. Not a DIY job IMHO. I don't know of anyone locally, but I feel your pain.

my damn arm is killing me... tomorrow im going to buy a damn electric sander

Any pics of your intake? Im having problems with deep scratching from the 60 grit. I think I will have to do 60,80,125,400,600 before I polish.

Here is SVTJosh's intke that inspired me.... I want my trickflow to look as nice as his.

yeah...something about spraypaint just dosent look as nice..

I got a damn dual action sander today and its eating it up and getting it smooth. damn small parts are going to be a bitch with a dremel but its worth it to me... cant turn around now...





that was the hand sanding... its amazing how a sander doesnt make your arm sore...

abex - spraypaint just cant compare to chrome or polished aluminium... it looks nice, just like a mirror.
