Cool Springer's Supercharger Build Thread

7/31/2010 - It begins:



8/1/2010 - Day 2:

Painted the K&N Intake, triple gauge pillar and wideband gauge trim:

Intake before:


Intake After One Coat:


Intake Finished:


Pillar and Gauge. Pillar was extremely shinny. Not anymore Middle gauge had silver trim. Now it's black:


This week after work, I plan on painting the supercharger, LSJ Throttle body (once it arrives), Fuse Box Cover and possibly my valve cover.


8/2/2010 - Day 2

Got home from work and noticed I has an LSJ TB waiting for me. So I painted it:






8/10/2010 - Day 10
After I throughly cleaned and sanded the blower, I laid down the red base coat:


After it dried, I masked off the areas I wanted to remain red:




Then I laid down the black coat and then the clear coat:



Going on vacation tomorrow but the build will begin on the 17th.
