You mean the supercharger rotor coating?
I think he just cleaned the crap off the rotors and is polishing the external aluminum casing.

Yeah, I just wasnt sure because of the big difference in coloring in the before and after shots of the rotors. Hopefully its not the case or they wont seal as well frown

looks similar to what i just did! nice job painting too. Yours defiantly looks better than mine, but i'm going to steal your silver/black idea when i pull the valve covers this next weekend.

just be sure you clean them good. so that there will not be any oil/silicon on surfice. paint 1st the stripes silver....then tape them and cut in the rict size so that the stripes are covered. then paint the rest black.

Exhaust...
today thinked a long time but finaly desided to do the downpipe when i get a highflow cat. atm did after cat whit 2,5'' pipes.
been lots of welding cuting and thinking...
here some pictures of the work.


Snowdog's Riv - Page 10 Pb090030
Stock. it's weard that the stock exhaust starts from downpipe whit 3'' till cat, after cat whit 2,5'' to resonator? and from there whit 2,2'' till Y...and there 2'' till muflers...uhh....did they wanted to save monney thats why they did all the sections diferent size?

New idea..
Snowdog's Riv - Page 10 Pb090033

Snowdog's Riv - Page 10 Pb090035
tips will ve hanging just half CM from the bumper, so they will stay pretty close, for protectign the rear bumper will have do but some thin stainless steel plate on the bumper so it will protect it of heat.

Resonator deleted. will deside later if i want do but a newone or keep it whitout it. the pipe goes after resonator whit 30+30 and again 30+30degree angle pipes....after that 70cm and comes a Y what whe made of 2 30 degree angles, they will spread again whit 30degree and after that 90 degree angles to mufflers.
