    Got SOM new stuff done

    Super chevy was around the corner and i needed to pull something out of my sleave to get the judges attention.I ended up painting my ls6 amni SOm along with the coils and some other stuff. I'll start with the easy stuff.

    before


    after


    here u can see the difference

    small write up=
    wet sand 400grid,800 grid,1000grid,1500grid. finish by touching it up with mothers alluminum Mag and polish for that xtra shine.
    Lincense plate holder/bracket
    12.00 from ebay
    before

    after


    door sills

    Painting manifold/coils/brackets.
    before

    I really wanted to chrome my coils brackets, but the lowest price I got was 90.00 and it would take 2 weeks for them to be done. I picked up duply colors chrome paint. at first i thought it would look tacky and cheap, but that paint made miracles. it turn out great.
    write up=
    2 coats of adheasive promotor,2 coats of hitemp primer,2 coats of your choice of color,3 coats of clear.



    SOM ls6 Manifold
    write up=wet sand 400 grid,600,800,1000,1500.
    3 coats of adhesive promotor,3, coats of primer,3 coats choice of color,4 coats of clear.
    As far as the SOM paint goes I couldnt get the original paint from Gm on time. I was 3 days away from the show.I went to Pepboys and found similar color made by duply color. they call it copper metallic.It's about 90% close to SOM.I was very happy with it.

    hi temp primer


    SOM/copper Paint


    clearI dont know why, but the clear made the SOM paint fall off.it didnt react well.So i just resprayed the manifold with 3 more coats of SOM

    finished product

    what did you use on your valve covers? just sand em from 400 grit up to 1500 and use polish on them?
    same for the fuel rails?
