    Ok so this is a pick up off my previous thread...the cover came in today and I’m extremely happy, wouldn’t change a thing. I painted the fratzog black and polished the rest of it. I’ve got maybe just a tad more polishing and cleaning to do before it’s ready to be powder coated clear, but you get the idea from these pics.

    If anyone is interested in getting one let me know. If I have a few interested it will start to be worth it and I’ll be able to give you a price. The more the better, but the decent pricing starts at a run of 5. Details of what it fits are below:

    1) meant to work with a magnum serpentine setup with electric fan

    2) only works with water pumps with bolt on pulleys (4 bolts)

    3) designed to work with the March performance billet pulley, but could work with others, there just might be a difference in the transition from cover to pulley

    Pics are below...if we do this, then polishing will be built in to the cost (unless you want to as it comes which is sanded to 1k grit). Also built in to the price will be the painting of the fratzog. Shipping fees apply of course.

    If I get 5 or more requests, the price will be $150 each. Which I realize is a lot, but understand I’m not making anything on this, and the cheapest quotes I got elsewhere were $400. So this is actually an extremely good price for a face milled hunk of aluminum, polished and everything. Let me know if your interested, otherwise just enjoy the pics!

        Just a note from the cheap seats ... if you're going to powder coat it clear, then the black paint you put on the fratzog will fail.

          Well the black paint is just a nicety, so I may just remove it, but I'm going to look at options other than powder coating.

          Probably something like Eastwood Exo-Armour. Works over paint and aluminum, and withstands heat.

          Check out the ceramic clears from NIC. They have a formulation for polished metals that has replaced my powder clear on the stuff I polish. They have a matte finish too.
