Just got my Proform carb body in. It looks nice and shiney.

The rest of my old card looks pretty crappy now.

Is there a certain type of paint I can use to paint the fuel bowls that will stick?

I think the Eastwood paint sucks and I say that even though M&M would get a kickback if you ordered it through our link.

I wonder if PonyCarbs would retint your parts for a fee? Their stuff looks nice.

Pony's replating prices are OUT OF $IGHT!
Jon has to out source most of the plating and it costs him plenty to get the quality he demands.

Like I said, the Eastwood stuff is just o k a y. (I didn't say that it was great)

All the plating is gone from mine. I can't scrub em anymore. I guess I'll try the Eastwood method first. If that does not work well enough. Can I buy new bowls from holley? Do they sell em that way?
