Painting Engine Block

IĀ felt I needed to work on my car this weekend, so I went out and purchased supplies to paint up my block and a few other parts. Nothing like wire wheeling and paint fumes on a Sunday arvo!

First up was to mask the deck and start removing parts from the block.

Prep work is important so I wire wheeled/brushed the old surface. Had to sand a few spots and than everything cleaned up with presol/wax grease remover.

Water pump removed, front of block and sump masked off. Did a few coats of primer.

Than the gloss black coats went on, still needs a few heat cycles to fully cure the paint.

All done!

Also spent some time painting one of the water outlets.

Pulled apart the alternator to paint. Wire brushed and cleaned with prepsol.

The finished parts!
