cce doesnt have chrome blocks only aluminum. Your best bet would be to buy some nice steel blocks and have them chromed. Or aluminum and polish them. Most of the chrome blocks i have seen are shitty.

if you got a line on a chrome plater you can wet sand the aluminium blocks to like 1500 and when they are chromed the look choice.

i used to have picks of some chrome one we had done but i can't find shit.

try pitbull,the pro hopper end of the year kit had nice chrome stuff.

see i went the other way, and adjusted the pump head side of it. worked great then started blowing the rubber o-rings. if left alone, they work, not great if hopping though.
did you even have to retap those? i cant remeber if it were just broken bolts in there are if some actually stripped. been a while

Pulled out the broken bolts and retapped them and drilled it for 6 bolts. And adjusted the pressure port some. :0 ;)
