I have done the cam cover, air flow sensor and throttle cam. I touch mine up every month or so. The air flow sensor gets dull real easy because it is made of zinc. I sanded the parts with 1500 grit sand paper to remove any blemishes and make it nice and smooth. Then I buffed with a metal polishing paste. It looks nice in my opinion.

I have the intake runner done for your car. Mine is an '83 and they are different. I didn't notice the diff until I went to install it. Make me an offer, it is pretty.
