JANUARY 26, 2011 - More Painting.

Second coat on the block and intake. Blasted and painted a few other odds and ends. Clipping along pretty well.

Thanks. Might just get her finished a hair sooner than anticipated. However...haven't touched a thing under the hood yet...lol.

Underhood shouldn't take too long. Probably just going to wipe down the firewall and fender wells with mineral spirits.

Like I have said...I'm not out to win a Concours D'Elegance...just want her to look good at local shows Cool

No primer. Two coats of paint on most everything though.

Used a brush and parts cleaner to get off the grease and oil, and manually wire brushed it.

The trans pan gasket is already new.

Replaced it about a year ago.
