The plated exhaust manifold looks so good!

Thanks! and thanks for the idea :D

 

The plan was to go for electrolytic polishing, but this exhaust is not made of just stainless steel. This was discovered during the process when the welds and the parts that connect to the cylinder head started to rust  O_O

So if anyone is looking for advice, buy the steel manifold and have it plated!

I had some parts that needed to be regalvanized, this is most of the parts before galvanizing;

and here we have a selection of the parts after galvanizing:

i also had some stuff powdercoated, but i couldnt be bothered to take pictures of that.

 

started reassembling my injection unit with shine pieces :D (it was getting dark so the picture is a bit crap)

but here is the finished product:

the bolts on the top are not staying, these are for a standard filter which wont go back on..

Another weekend spent on sanding, you have no idea how much i hate it :P

 

This time its the parts of the interior that will be visable, the boot and the engine bay.

Process is not great but we're getting there.
