Prepping intake manifold for paint

Hi, i'm just after some tips as to how you prep the intake runners on a VLT manifold for 2pac? I'm looking at using a Hi fill first then 2pac so it's nice and smooth but i dont want to have to sand the casting marks out of it (pitted alloy look) as it's a prick of a job.
would it be good to use a 4:1 hardener ratio for the hi fill or richen it up a bit?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

dad did mine so i can ask him this arvo if u want

but i think it was bead blasted and then a coat of etch primer, the base coat and then the raised bit on top was filed off then clear coat put on

sorry thats pretty sketchy and not 100% if thats wat happened but yeh can ask if u want
its holding up nicely so far
