bead roll, or weld little bumps on the ends of those pipes, unless you like random blow-offs.

Thanks for posting, I'm about to build aluminum piping for mine. I was debating on polishing or not, now I think I will. Looks great!

Steve was saying without a bead on the edge where your couplers go, the pipe will blow off when bigger amounts of boost are applied.

It takes a while, but this is the way i did it.

First I started with 150 sandpaper, followed by 220,320,400,600,1000,2000. After a good wetsanding, it was ready to be polished. I used Mothers aluminum polishing and rubbed it in real good. You have to sand those pieces real good. If you start seeing a shine at the 2000 grit paper, your doing great!. Once polished use terry towels to remove the polish and there you have it. An inexepensive expensive look!

When will the car be done? Will it be done today? Lets meet tomorrow... Did you show Nick the pics of my car? Let him see it *****! :D

Well, the car will be officially done tomorrow. It was already started and it sounded great! We can meet tomorrow at the shop. Do you know where it is? Drop me an email and phone call. I should be there most of the morning and half the afternoon. After that, I'm headed to get an alignment and a carwash. My car sounds so freakin good! I didn't show Nick the pictures because he has been SO busy with my ride. If you come over, it would be better. ;) I know Nick hasn't seen you since you left the shop. Neo Tech is off the 67 North off of Prospect. :)
