Did you buy it? Be ready to turn a wrench...a B2k can be one of the most rewarding cars you'll ever drive, it just might take a minute to get it there.

Not yet. Owner passed away and family said i have first shot at it once they are ready to sell. It's giving me time to do my needed research. Did notice some clearcoat lamination at the top edges of the aerobody panels.

The question was recently asked, "Are the black parts of the intake a powder coat or painted finish?"
The answer is, they are painted. Here's the process.

Using VHT Wrinkle Plus Paint (P/N SP201) pre-heat the parts in an oven to 125* F.
Paint three (3) fairly heavy coats, with 5 minute between coats of paint.
Raise the oven temperature to 180* F to cure.

Overall, check each time every coat out every 15 minutes, leave in for a max for 30 min. Then let cool overnight.

Remove all rubber and plastic parts prior to this refurbishment process.
