      so, i have been polishing for the last 3 days...

      long story short, i was doing a coolant flush, and i decided to remove the mani for proper mirror polishing... on wednesday afternoon... lol

      the plan is to mirror polish some parts under the hood... which included the mani.

      upon the removal of the mani, 2 of the o-rings fell from the mani. I made some calls and in the end the OWNER of HEP sent em a text with the o rings info... The funny thing was that i found em! but they sold em as a pack of 100. i'm going to send some 35s to tom@aptuning who has been more than helpful... i will keep some 60.

      if ANYONE ever needs some more HEP mani O-rings, let me know.
      pack of 100:


      after 30ish hours of a lot of sanding, wet sanding, rubbing compound and mother's polish this was the result:

      me, almost done... at this point sanding was done... i was just going to start with the rubbing compound and mother's polish


      all done. its a mirror now.

      just a few things i've done and see you could make a bit cleaner...not down grading what you have done, it looks good...just a few bits to help out.

      -coolant line front the front battery area back can be hidden better, under the big rad hose.
      -the tb vac line can be ran under the intake manifold and almost be hidden 100%....mostly on the pass/side.
      -coil wires that come down the front IS cleaner the oem but you can run them back down the back part of the head, cleaning up the front part, then run the wires from the cam sensors near the injectors.
      -find mk3 aba ful line C clips and they can hold the fuel and evap lines together making it clean on the p/s by the head.
      - the trans mount bolts...take them out and buy SS ones for cheap and they are just as safe, polish them.
      -use oem clothc tape and not electrical...looks cleaner
      -turbo it

      6-use oem clothc tape and not electrical...looks cleaner

      7-turbo it
      1- the little line? the one thats on top of the big rad hose?

      2- i could route it under the mani, yes. but with the BIG motor mount braket and the mani, there is hardly any room there to squeeze the line. plus, running it this way gives a black background to the polish, it makes it stand out a bit more.

      3- ?

      4- will look into it.

      5- i still have some more polishing. i want to improve the look of the timing cover. will work some more this week.
      i might polish the part thats under the tranny mount... we'll see.

      6- i know, but it gets VERY dirty VERY fast. i'm holding from doing it untill sowo is closer.

      7- soon. i'm saving and planing.

      i'm thinking on using the CTS 750 hp race intecooler core. its a FMIC and a 5858

      Fred, you're going to need to wet sand up to 2000 to get mirror shine.and you'll need a high powered rotary machine with some buffing wheels.
      Search for zephyr or keystone mill treated air way wheels.its the only way you'll get mirror finish. If you need pics I'll send you a few

      The hardest thing was mounting the fuse box in the glove box and making everything look pretty.

      But unfortunately it is one of those projects i will never do again. I glad its done and did it but never again lol.

      Hopefully ill get started on the headlight harnesses in a couple weeks, i just figure out were to run the wires thru to get to the fender.
