Anyone interested in a polished 3800 series2 intake and valve covers?

I have all this from a 96 firebird so thought I would polish it instead of throwing it in the trash if anyone was interested in it. Would take me a few weeks to do and would sell for 250.00

here is how nice I get stuff, this is a 5.0 tpi system I am doing

did a small test area and this manifold shined right up. Still have a lot of sanding to do but it should have a chrome like shine when done.

Where were you when I was still in the V6 game? Oh well, my Pontiac Blue and Silver engine was pretty tits without shine.

Not likely, most people exchange dead ones for their core.

haha if you couldn't imagine keeping a 3.8 intake clean, here is another project I am working on. Fully polished 1990 corvette suspension.

here is the start of the lower intake, these are a pain to do but first you have to start sanding all the rough casting off



here is a test area, this is where the CTS sensor threads in.

I will also be doing a 97 LT1 manifold. I have a spare being shipped for me to polish and after it's done, I will polish the one off my car as well

3800 manifold not easy to polish, mega sanding involved! But here is plenum progress.

On the drivers side of the plenum there is a casting ridge that runs the length of the manifoldI completely removed





the rear has its share of casting lines too. start of smoothing it out



passenger side not as hard but still a lot to do





small are that I polished quick to show you. it has even more potential for shine.

Looks awesome man. My goal is to just pull mine off and paint them. But if I wanted polish I would definitely take that. Not a bad price either.

here are my newest upcoming polishing projects. LT1 & crossfire injection manifolds. I have the twin throttle bodies for the CFI as well.

Looking for fuel rails for the LT1 though.

So had some spare time today. Spent about 2 hours on the LT1 manifold. Far Far from done but it is shaping up to. Not seeing any bad casting flaws so should be able to get a chrome shine out of it too.

LT1 manifold by far easier then 3.8 manifold, I will never do another 3.8 manifold again.

No progress done on the crossfire manifold though.
