Well i've decided to do something with the alloy top engine cover coz it was filthy and needed sorting out. So went out and bought a dremel to do some polishing with. I'm going to clean up and then paint it black. Then polish up the writing and the 8 domes to mirror finish. I'm also considering polishing up the top of the camshaft pulley housing to mirror finish. I feel this may take some time but worth doing I think. May have to go bigger on the tooling for that bit though!!!

Any way check out the progress so far. (piccies attached)!!!

I really wanted to do all of it mirror finish but i think the grooves & ridges kind of put pay to that!!!

I had a go at cleaning them up by trial and error with different tools in the pack.

All comments and tips greatfully recieved!!!

i'm also trying to add pics of my new induction kit i built!!! currently not loading but bear with me!!
