Aloha fellow MX6ers,

Just an update, some more parts trickled in thanks to Darren from King6Fab.

We bought the PCV eliminator which we will be routing to a puke tank.



And the manual tensioner.



Darren does really great work. Thanks again. Waiting for a few more sponsors and we should get rolling once again.

Till next time "Keep it off the street and on a track and SPEED SAFELY".

Mahalo,
PunishUM Motorsports

Aloha All,

Hope Y'all keeping warm, its a frigid 74 degrees @ 23:18 HST. The project is not DEAD but still going strong. It takes time as we await our sponsor support. We finally got sponsored by Optima Batteries and will be taping the battery relocation install next week. Followed by buttoning up the exhaust and the rest of the car.



Also we had sent the winner of our giveaway contest the goodies we promised, pair of some kewl and pricey Ringers Gloves and threw in a Ringers cap as well as the shipping at no expense to the forum member and the dude reneged. He never sent us back a pic with his schwag. Very disappointed so we may not do that again. If you go back on the posts you will see who the member was.

Anywho you folks on the left coast be safe from that record frigid front about to slam you guys.

Till next week Keep it off the street and on a track and SPEED SAFELY.
Mahalo from PunishUM Motorsports.

PS, here is a clip of our Speed Shop segments we compiled so you know what to expect when we finish our MX6 trilogy. I'll also post up some pics of da Bootiful Island weather Mahn. ALooooooHA

Aloha,

So we all know how EGR gizmos attached to any engine helps to produce more horsepower. So before we make to much HP and fly to the moon, we decided to block off the EGR to the headers we are installing. We are also blocking and S*#T canning ALL dat thing-a-mah jigs from the entire engine.



Till next time, keep it off the street and on a track and SPEED SAFELY,
Mahalo

Oh I missed the sarcasm sorry. Some people don't know any better and might take it serious. I did it for the good of the internets.

Apparently some just felt the whoosh from above.

On another note, we finally got our powder coat sponsor. We start shooting that next week Wednesday. For now the FD rims will get the treatment in satin black to accentuate the high gloss black lug nuts and valve stem while the valve covers will be in fluorescent red and gold flake.



ALoooooooHA

Aloha fellow MX6ers,

As promised we had gotten the powder coating done today thanks to Ty & Bobby over @ Hi-Tech Coatings. The viewers will really enjoy this segment.

So here are the rims and valve covers before the powder coat process began.





First step was to sand blast the rims and covers. The sand blasting does two things. First it cleans off the original coating, what ever it was and secondly it gives a nice surface for the powder coating to adhere to. Trust me, there's a guy in there doing his job.



Here are the difference between the two.





Then Ty masks off the hub. This doesn't allow the powder coat to cause a interference with the mating surfaces.





Here is the first coat being applied. You can see the coating getting on the rim and you can also see the areas where the powder coat has not yet gotten onto the rim.



All the rims with its first coat.



And the rims after its first heat cure.



And here is the second coat. Look at the already cured areas and the second powder coating being applied over them.



And the full set of rims after the second coat and second heat curing. The finish is much more even and thicker. This is when it is still very hot so it looks glossy. As it cures the finish will become more satin which is the look we want.



Next comes the valve covers. Here they are after the sand blast process.



Here is the first coating.



First heat curing.



Second coating.



And why is the third/ 3rd coating white?



Actually that is the clear coat with gold flake. You can see the gold flakes in this pic, but it really doesn't do it justice. The gold flakes are as numerous as the stars in the universe



And the final step is Ty removing the coating from the emblem.



Mucho Mahalo to Ty and Bobby over @ Hi-Tech Coatings in Kapolei. Modern powder coating has come a long way from just primary colors. With fluorescent, candies and pearls to gold flake and satin. Chrome needs to much maintenance and painting can never withstand the constant wear and tear powder coating can. A little soap and water and a wipe and you're done.

Whew, what a day. Will post up some more pics tmrw after I polish the emblem and mount the rims for a looksy.

So till next time, Book UM Dano and ALooooooooHA
