I have the intention of finishing most engine and chassis parts in a finish for which I believe the technical term is “murdered out”. In that vein, here’s some more parts in matte black. A fairly stained stainless exhaust is getting bead blasted. Some poor welds on fitting for a lambda sensor and EGT sensor (not my fault though could just as well have been) was cleaned up a bit. Not sure if the end result was much of an improvement, honestly. The flange for attaching the exhaust to the head was bent, I’ve straightened it out somewhat. I have a mini oxy-torch which is very helpful for jobs like this. Still a bit tricky when it’s not possible to remove without cutting up the pipe but I think it’s better than before at least.
