Yeah, I'm thinking it'll look pretty good.


I'll just leave the S52 cover on for now, I guess. I talked to the guy from bfc and he said he wouldn't be able to mail me a wrinkle red one until next week.

You should get a Dakar Yellow cover. :-)

CJ, not Matt, Matt's car would look like McDonalds.

Hell, I've been running no cover forever, maybe I should get a color matched one so it looks like I'm doing it on purpose. How much does it cost again?

We are thinking alike again. $110 is pretty dang steep for that small area powder coated.

well i'll have to look around for an oven. i already have a vc, and can confirm fitment of said oven.

i even have a location that i could use for a shop. (i'd probably have to powder a few tractor parts as well for part of the deal, though...)

how much was the core, and does the 110 cover shipping??

hmmm....going to have to look into this. srsly.

oh, and are we srsly gonna do a 'bring ken to bf east' fund?? drive or fly up?? how much do you think it'll be??

oh, and look for a little diy that cj inspired me to do coming soon too.

off to work now.

If someone has a good idea as how too enlarge a home oven without welding I'm all ears! I'd be happy to do valve covers.

Core is $35, I believe. $110 does not cover shipping.

CJ is there not a local place that would do them cheaper? Im getting Ashlins x5 wheels done for $60 per wheel, would probally only be $60ish for a single valve cover.

Yeah, I'm actually bringing it to a local place that will do it for $100. The valve cover is probably more work than the wheels because of the terrible finish.
