I'm getting those random metal parts powdercoated to match the car; I need to get the replacements for the C.A.R.B. stickers and company logo sticker for when I get it all back... but there is the red tape first. You need either the reciept from your purchase or a picture of the system installed on the car, plus that form from the site below.

So I'm having to order a new silicone elbow for the throttle body while I wait to hear back from the metal refinishers...









I'll let yous Mid-Atlantic fellers know how the work looks; and of course, more pics!

If you need to recoat you intake tubing, and want to replace the CARB stickers and Logo (from AEM in this case), you'll need to get this form. I need to get it to the right person with a picture of the system installed, and they'll reissue the sticker set to you.

Unless you don't live in a state that cares as much, or you just plain don't care in the first place.

Once I get through the process I'll spill more beans. The powder coating is done and I've got a deal working for a replacement upper-tube, thanks to the B-S-T sections, so it'll come back together pretty quick.

A classmate of ours is trying to get my valve cover once I put the super-pimp color-keyed one back.

Got the powder coated pieces back today... I need to learn to throw a controlled-hissy-fit I guess! The clor is too dark, and they hit me for the full quoted price after damaging one of the intake tubes.

I already have a replacement tube paid-for (via B-S-T secions) and en route, so I'm still in need to take that back to the guy and have that done... crossing my fingers that the color will match: long story short > I had expected better results and feedback from these guys.

The work looks alright, but some of the items have obvious marks that look like crappy resurfacing underneath the color and that shows through LIKE CRAZY in direct sunlight. If I had it to do over again I would go somewhere else. Pics to follow
