#1 Taking off finishing exhaust manifold

Post by Mich7920 » Wed Mar 29, 2017 4:12 pm

Hi all,

I would like to taking off what remains of the original finish of my exhaust manifolds. :helpsign:
I think some of you have already done this work.
What was your best solution ?

Thanks
Mich

Nice to see someone who does not favour wide wheels and modern rubber!
