Either that or resize it, host the image at www.imageshack.us and copy and paste the link called 'hotlink for forums" (1 or 2) and the image will come up straight away

I haven't got to any of my parts yet!!! Does buying chrome rocker covers count?

Mark's EF is a looker guys, it has the best looking engine bay for an EFI six that I've ever seen. The attention to detail is amazing. Good work mate.

yea pretty much, this is what i did,
first i used paint stripper to get the greyish stuff off.
then sandered it with 180 grit wet then 240 wet then 400wet.,
i used a few other grits in between but cant remember what numbers.
then i used some very fine dry stuff its not paper, its like steel wool but extremely fine.
then to get the shine i used a buffing machine with lambs wool on it and metal polish called autosol.
