I painted the heat shields over the exhaust manifolds too. It was actually easier than I thought it would be. But they sure smoked like crazy when I started it up after a couple hours. The fumes were strong to say the least. But after a couple minutes it stopped, and in an hour it was cured.

I don't pressure wash it either. I never liked the idea of getting water in and on it. Believe it or not, I used a wire brush, toothbrush, and Armorall wipes to clean my engine. But I literally clean everything I can see and reach, and don't stop till I'm done. Like Allmach said...I'm insane.

Now that it'* painted it will be easier to keep clean.

Thanks. I guess I am pimp now.

But I'm not done yet. I want to paint my radiator fans (and probably some other stuff) gold too.

Does anyone know what I have to do to paint these? I mean how do I get them out? What do I have to unplug if anything??

I actually agree. I still have more to do, and I was thinking on doing either red or black stripes on the valve cover, on the three 1/2 inch thick "ribs" or whatever you wanna call them.
