    wow, everyones doing it now..:)

    It seems to be a popular trend these days to have a polished plenum. Hell if I could be bothered I would do it to..:) Looks great..:):YD

    Would be interested to know...

    what sort of prep you have to do to the plenum to get it chrome coated and how much roughly to get it done. Its a really good idea and looks insane.

    chrome is the worst coating for retaining

    heat.

    Looks nice. But why chrome.. No good for it.

    High temp might peal or discolour it. I hope for your sake it wont cause it would be a waste of money otherwise. Should have just got it polished same finish look.

    Gotta agree with the discolour though.. alth

    ough wagz says he had no trouble, a lot of people at the hot rod show in melbourne said that it goes green and bluish on their cars. But it still looks awesome!

    Certainly chromed headers will discolour, >>

    but I don't know whether the upper plenum would cop enough heat to discolour it.It looks great - when (if ever!) my upper plenum comes off I will have to do some form of bling bling dress-up.

    Did u make the throttle cover urself?

    how much did the CF cost ya? ALso, is it the same as doing a fibreglass job?Did u make a mold or just use the orginal throttle cover to make the CF cover?
