I'm not sure if this belongs here or in the Appearance forum (seems more external appearance, so I decided here).

I'm building a C3 vette rod and putting in a modded LS2 (AFR Headers, FAST LSX manifold, etc..). I'm looking for performance, a bit of a show car. I want to get the engine block, headers, valve covers, and intake manifold smoothed and painted a glossy black. Does anyone have any experience doing this? I've read that it is much harder with Aluminum. Or does anyone know a good shop in the Northeast that would do this?

Thank you for your help!
