Did you take off all the parts that you wanted paionted or did you paint them while on the car. Also how hard was it to take apart the alt.

I painted everything while on the car. I didn't have to take anything off, or take anything apart The engine looks so much better in person than it does in these pictures. I used 1200 degree back and 500 degree clear, so I shouldn't have any problems with this paint from heat.
