Easy Intake Mod

I plan to fabricate an intake for my 900, but until then I had to do something with the factory one (too much chrome for me). Anyhow, a little careful masking and some rattle can paint changed it considerably.

I may even try some wrinkle paint to add more texture. Give it a try if you are interested, and little acetone will put it back to factory if you do not like it.

How do you get the perfect circles with the tape?

Work slow and use good striping tape. I used 1/8".

I just painted the bed of my truck with some bed-liner paint that would look great because it has some texture. When I redo it, I'll post a new pic.
