This is the 2nd motor that ive sprayed.
1500 degree temp paint of course. stripping the old paint took longer then painting it. The block and head where orange and the valve cover candy purple.. dont ask....
Looks like you did a pretty decent job...
I attempted that once. It looked nice, until it got all greasy going in. After about 4 months, the paint started to wear.
Looks good though.
looks like you did a decent job,,but painted isnt my thing,,unless its painted aluminum
thanks for the good comments guys. I cant wait to get the motor put together again and slap it in the hatch.
Is that a widebody kit? And shaved handles?
No wide body just fender flares. Yes sir the handles are shaved. Its a pain right now though since the battery is out. i have to crawl in through the hatch to open the doors.
While the concept is nice, and it presents a very clean look to the car, I wouldn't do the whole shaved door thing. Knowing my luck, I would end up stuck outside my car in bad weather and be fother mucking myself.
LMAO I know thats going to happen to me one of these days. Im contemplating on whether swapping dors with someone who wants shaved handles. For that same reason. I also want to get the car re-sprayed. I would like a color that doesnt say; "Hey Officer look over here!" Preferably black or white.
very very nice i like the whole set up
looks good man you shoulda painted it the colors of the car but its gunna stick out under the hood and ths what you want when its popped
The motor was the same color but I thought this was a better look. Even though it doesnt match. I want to get the car re-sprayed so it will match the motor.. some day. lol
Nice job man, and the hatch isnt bad either, not too extreme. I almost bought a hatch with shaved handles. I need to clean my engine up better.
Black makes officers look... oh you meant the car. Haha. Yea black would look nice with that motor.
Going to look like shit in a year, but whatever floats your boat.
I like the engine better than the car
The engine has sort of a retro look to it. As far as the car goes, I'm pretty much not into "that".
agreed..but hey,,itd be good for a showcar,,looks to be done well
