It was easier that I thought it would be. Just stripped the paint and polished the brass. Still need to put a clear coat on it, but it turned out real nice.

I did that to my radiator (back in 1986 :lol: ) too bad when I had it re-cored for the V6, they did a horrible soldering job on it so I had to paint it black again. :evil:

Might want to think about putting that fuel filter on the non pressure side and away from the 40K volts of the coil.
