    i dont think is that hard to do,, i'll be doing that some time in the future as well.

    sand it, throw some primer on it, sand it again and paint it, spray it 3 or 4 times on it,

    i have seen threads here bout people doing that job you might wanna look at them

    I'd also recommend doing some "clean up" work while your there.

    LS6 Valley Cover tray mod, go ahead install new knock sensors and also have a OPSU handy. You will have a high chance of breaking it when you remove the intake or install.

    I say this because if you plan on doing these later you might as well do it now to save you the time and work of doing it 2-3 times.


    another pic with it on


    I'm thinking of powder coating the TB when I do the STB next month in NBM.
