HEY!! Don't paint it until I get the leak fixed!! There's a very small leak at the right rear where the extended sump meets the original part of the pan- that's how I got it so cheap!! (I got it cheap enough to make turtle jealous..))

Kev, are you using the Eastwood or Harbour Freight style hobby guns? Where are you getting your powder from?

Jeff, I was going to pc my hood strut but thought it would end up all scratched to shit because of it's folding design. Once Kev shoots it for you and you've bolted it back on, can you take some pics of it please mate?

Wayne,
Kevin did his, and it looks good. $250 for a chrome one is nuts.

I didn't realise Kev had done his, but I agree with you about the cost of a chrome one - I could probably get one gold plated out here for that price! Probably going to go with a gas strut now anyway.

I've just had a set of hood hinges chromed and will bolt them on in the next couple of days...

Kevin & Wayne,

I got my valve covers stripped. If I use Gloss Black to PC, do I need to shoot clear on to protect the bare aluminum fins. I'm trying to return them to the stock GM look.

Thanks,

Herb

If you look above at my motor pics my valve covers are pc,i shot the orange baked it and then i put a pc clear coat over it to keep the bare alum from getting nasty,makes for an easy clean up too. now if you are pc the whole cover except for the fins,i think you would be fine,but the clear will keep the fin's looking nice forever.
