    After you bringing this up and a guy on another forum bringing it up. I looked into it. With my background I could build my own tank and be running for much less than 10K. I am seriously considering this as a side thing.

    Is your friend planning on a carb'd LS1 ??

    $10K.....wow. You're on a mission, hope you can recoup your investment. Good luck.

    I gotta say. We have a GMPP intake and they look like crap out of the box. That is a much needed improvement.


    Look up hydro dipping or hydro graphic transfer you'll find a ton of info.

    looks awesome!
    I have considered having a few of my firearms dipped for hunting, but don't want to ship...
    how much trouble is it to remove if you screw the dip up?

    can you hose it down with activator to melt it? then maybe rinse it off?

    you just sand it back down as long as you dont go through the base you can dip it again. Here is a Nitrous bottle i did for another guy

    I can see sanding that bottle.. but the surface of a firearm is way more complex.
    maybe I will keep looking...lol:innocent:
