Engine Progress pics


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I have added some new pics to my photobucket page of my winter engine project. I have refreshed/replaced alot of parts and while I wait to order more stuff, (just need more $$) I thought I would do a pre-assembly assembly. I am happy with the look so far. Nothing has been torqued down as of yet, just couldn't wait to see it together....

Yeah, love the dupli-color. I re-did a 69 mustang a couple years ago and loved the blue engine paint so I carried it over to the Z. The aluminum parts were bead blasted and if the finish was OK I just clearcoated them. If it wasn't I used Aluminum engine paint and clear. Being on an island the salt air really does a number on the aluminum so all parts will have a high temp clear-coat. Still leaning towards a white for final color. It was the color of my first Z in 76. I think this motor will look good in a gleaming white engine bay. Just my personal opinion.
