Got things cleaned up and started priming and painting. Not going to lie the cleaning is the biggest PITA so far!













Thats it for now, hope to paint the engine and more parts on Friday when I am off work. The aluminum parts are taking forever to get clean!!!

Got the block/heads, almost all the brackets, and pulley assemblies painted. I still am working on cleaning the front cover, LIM, and Oil pan (man the aluminum is a pain to clean). The black is High temp engine semi gloss black, and the rest is high temp "coated cast aluminum". Think it all turned out ok.
Once I get a couple more parts in I can start putting it back together.

Primed and ready to go.




Silver parts and a clean starter:












The N* and LQ4 MAF:




Hope to get more done Sunday and next week when the rest of the parts come in.

Well on Saturday at 6am (I was working on less than 3 hours of sleep so it was fun) my car got picked up to go to the body shop.

All loaded up




One the way


At the shop (my body guys 87 Turbo T-type, very nice)


I am trading work at his shop on various things for my paint job so here are some things I am working on (with help from my Dad)

Engine from the black one went in to the red Thunderchicken, was a PITA actually.


A guy wanted this put on his car, don't ask why cause I don't know.. plus it had the tails, import like gauges, and a 9v battery velcro to the dash to power the gauges :pat:






My car ready to go


My body guys other TR


70 Chevelle clone, gonna be freaking sweet too!


More updates to come

Those Mustang bumper covers don't look half bad but the taillights put it over the edge. Can't wait to see pics of that Chevelle done. I loveeeeeeeee those cars

Chevelle should be done in a few weeks. As for the mustang, the front bumper is ok, the rest is down right terrible.
