Post by Callaway Chris »

The question was recently asked, "Are the black parts of the intake a powder coat or painted finish?"
The answer is, they are painted. Here's the process.

Using VHT Wrinkle Plus Paint (P/N SP201) pre-heat the parts in an oven to 125* F.
Paint three (3) fairly heavy coats, with 5 minute between coats of paint.
Raise the oven temperature to 180* F to cure.

Overall, check each time every coat out every 15 minutes, leave in for a max for 30 min. Then let cool overnight.

Remove all rubber and plastic parts prior to this refurbishment process.
