  Welcome back everyone. It's the start of the 2015 Restoration Season. Time to clean up the areas, get ready to get back to the outdoor work. This year, I am hoping to get her on the road. Finished, or at least to some shows and crusing while finshing touches are done. before we sand for painting, There are a few things we have to catch up on. Clean up and paint the engine, and buff the stainless on the car that can't come off. I will be doing that after the engine is painting and finished... But, for now, here is what was done these past days and weeks.

  We are up to painting the engine. But first, we have to remove several parts, clean them up and paint them. Then, we have to prep the engine itself for painting. That requireres several steps to get it ready to paint. This paint, is a engine paint. Made to withstand high temps.

  Then, use a degreaser to remove oil and grease, rough up the existing engine block, valve cover, and surface so the paint will stick. The parts, painted off the car, will be re installed after the paint cures. The following pics and video was done within the week or so. Here's how that went.
