To be fair it is in the forum rules that a log is only a log once there have been actual progress pictures posted, rather than just concept pics and/or photos of the gear. Often that means the logs starts when the first bit of modding gets going.

In other news, wow now EK decides to offer gold fittings... Bit late but alright then. Always love seeing how your builds turn out Snef, will definitely be watching with keen eyes.

Dat gold plating job! So he plates the entire blocks, even the innards, that's interesting. I would have thought that would negatively impact the temps, if only a little.

You plated the rotaries? Do they still rotate and stuff? The anodized compression fittings will look babyshit brown next to those.


One of 50. None of the other Vulture builders can brag about that. It's like Eddy gave you his personal copy.

I must admit I am worried about the compression's up against this bling
