    Received this, courtesy of Munky. Thanks again mate for a smooth and easy transaction! Will take very good care of them.

    Wrapped and labeled with love. *Cue Charlie Puth/Wiz Khalifa : See You Again*



    Contents inside! ARC Chamber and ARC induction box! Cannot wait to put this on my NA8!



    Will be polishing it up first using some of the PIKAL metal polish that I got with my ZOOM retro fuel lid. Hoping to install this over the coming weekend!

    What is the wall thickness of the metal on the ARC chamber? Was wondering if a plug and compressed air could deal with those dents.

    I always thought those dents were intentional...?

    To be honest, its quite thin. You may be able to deal with the dents with compressed air given it was strong enough, but to be honest, ever single ARC chamber ive seen is dented because of how it sits in the engine bay, i.e it doesnt sit flush and the bonnet almost always hits it. Munky's one is the cleanest and the least dented that I've seen personally. Ideally I'd have liked it to be dentless as if it were brand new, but hey, the dents give it character I guess and since its a product which is no longer manufactured, I'll gladly put it on the NA8

    Steve, there is a solution, you have to plug one end with let's say tape or something very strong and the other end slightly looser for expansion but pour some water in it and stick it in the freezer. I never got around to it but it's a fairly safe way of trying to get it straighter without damage

    Thanks for the advice Miguel! I might give it a go later on down the track!

    RS-Watanabe's fully refurbed and repaired, ready to be mounted! It will be accompanied by :
    - RS-Watanabe Lug/Lock Nuts
    - RS-Watanabe Valve Stems
    - RS-Watanabe Centre Caps
    - 185/60/R14 Tyres. (Not many options for this size in Australia, so will most likely go with Pirelli Cinturato P1's)

    Sweet baby Jesus, those are beautiful.

    Every time I've opened this thread since you showed them getting refurbed I've been hoping to see the above post. And now you have finally delivered... half of what I want to see. Now eagerly awaiting to see them mounted.
