Day 6

Start time: ~2:00pm
End time: ~8:00pm

Short day today.
I welded up the intercooler piping and started painting.
I went ahead and clear coated the Twilight Blue (DupliColor brand) with DupliColor Truck & SUV clear coat and I'm happy with the results.
I have no idea what is supposed to make it Truck & SUV.

I used a satin black anti-rust paint as a primer. (ColorPlace from Wal Mart)
I guess we'll see how tha works out.

I started fitting pieces of the exhaust but haven't made a single weld yet after the down pipe.


IC pipes:

IC pipes:
Ambient pipe is primered.

IHI compressor housing after clear coat:
I might replace this blurry pic later.
