« on: January 01, 2018, 08:40:15 AM »

Getting ready to start my 117 build.

Will add more details later.

New cylinders and spare heads that I had done by HD Street Performance (Don) have been painted Pearl Black. I thought I would try my hand at fin cutting (attached picture), heads are done, still need to do the cylinders.
Not perfect but I thought came out pretty good.

Will be painting the rest of the motor Pear Black when disassembled. Will be adding a chrome inner.

Agree.
Diamond Heads has a patent on that. They hurt a lot of people doing that for money.  >:(

Yep, they have a BS patent based on a false and unverified claim of heat reduction that did hurt at least two others that were making a meek living from offering this service. They can't stop me from doing my own though.

Mr. Warlock, I live up the road in Elon area and was contemplating doing the 117 to mine. Are you doing the work or someone you know?

The diamond cut looks great and was thinking about doing the same to mine although I am not sure how good it would look on the granite

care to share any tips on how you did the diamond cut yourself

Good luck on the build, I will follow it
