It was at that point that I realized that I had a pile of engine tins and various engine parts that needed to be cleaned, blasted, and painted.

I setup a fantastic rack system out of some chairs, a ladder, a broom, and a rake

I also needed to drill the holes for the twin plug setup in the lower valve covers:

It was at this point I realized how dirty/corroded these parts were, along with the fan, fan housing, and upper valve covers. I took a trip to harbor freight for some glass bead and blasted everything.

So my driveway turned into this:

After that I painted the fan housing black and clear coated all the parts that had just been bead blasted to protect the finish. It all looks fantastic!
