.
I shaved all the casting marks off the stock intake manifold with a 4" grinder / cut-off wheel..... then used a dremel tool and a electric block sander.....
 
started with 40 grit ........ then slowly worked up to 220 ........ followed by 00 steel wool and mother's aluminum polish, and 320grit into the wet polish
 
finished with 0000 steel wool, mother's, 400 grit, more 0000 and more polishing for hours......

That manifold is awesome!  And you did most of the polishing by hand?  Good work!

.
The intake manifold took over 35 hours streched out over a six month period... .. . .
 
 
Started with a cut-off wheel to remove most of the casting marks and un-neccesary bolt holes
 
..... then followed with a medium grit grinding pad, then 40 grit sanding......... all the way to 220
 
Mother's aluminum polish and 00 steel wool,,, , then 320 wet sanding into the wet polish .... .. . same thing with 400 grit
 
..... then 0000 steel wool and mothers polish and a soft cloth ...... .. still might to try a polishing wheel or something

.
I "borrowed" the brake master cylinder off the 510 . .. everything bolted in perfect, 510 backing plate, master, and stock 510 push-rod (looks like it will fit perfect in the stock 710 pedal-box)


 

 

 

 

 

... ... trying to "hide" the brake lines ...... .. still mocking it up,,, , but I plan on running a brake line through the front crossmember (unless that's a horrible idea???)
