Thanks :D I really love the ARC Inductions, look very smart. Will get some pictures up of it tomorrow, need to restore it a little to get it up to scratch for fitting it.
The Toda will take a while to clean up but she's getting there.

Could you tell me how are u cleaning the Toda?
Thanks
I'm using a mixture of metal polish and WD40 as a compound. I'm using fine grit emory tape because it allows you clean all around the pipe with ease. I will use finer grit wet and dry to finish, maybe with a buffer too.

Picture of the ARC, found a small crack so getting that welded up.
Will get it all polished and clean before fitting.
Manifold is getting there, slowly.

It doesn't have a numbered grade, it's called fine Emory tape. If I were to guess its probably around 3-400 grit maybe less.

Got to the ligher grade today
Then borrowed a polishing kit..... Mmmmm nice! That's how it's going to be!


Been trying to clean up the bottom pipes, but where it gets all the road grime I'm not going to be able to get it as clean as I'd like :( just going to heat wrap the bottom part.
Will probably end up buying a new one in time.
