DOING UP THE ENGINE BAY


Recommended Posts

Been a bit side tracked with summer family stuff, But finally back on the former 429 Mach..So we pulled the 429+c6..Now that it's out of way & sold I can concentrate on doing the engine bay & related parts. I've already cleaned power washed the bay 3 times & it's ready to start prepping..Have a few more tidbits to remove get out of the way..We are going to start scotch briteing sanding today..after that we will see where I'm at..I've already media blasted a bunch of parts & have them in epoxy primer..Going to be using eastwwod extreme chassis black for everything above the rails..Continuing with the sem rust shield for everything below the aprons..

This is a conspiracy to make me clean up my empty engine bay isn't it? Well it isn't going to happen (well not much anyway) Unfortunately I have the tools and supplies, just not the desire

 

Looks great.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Looks good Scott!! Man that car is rock SOLID!!!

Thanks !

Yes very solid car Definitely not a northeast car ...I've been taking a bunch of photos of all the factory seam seam sealer & stuff just to have to document should I ever decide to do one concours..One thing that was really cool was when I removed the fenders it still had factory seam sealer applied on the fender to splash shield joint..never knew that ford actually sealed the plastic splash shields to the fender..

Like usual Scott great work and great information for future reference. When at the MCA show in Indy they had this 844 mile original paint 71 boss. Still had all of the original sound deadener on it. Man, they layed that stuff down by the inch. Look at some of these pics.

Looks great Scott! What do you think of the Eastwood paint products? I have used the extreme chassis black on all my chassis parts, rear axle housing, steering gear, etc. with good results. I have also used their epoxy primer on a pickup I painted a few years back and on my Grande Im playing with now. For the price, it seems to work well.

I don't use their primers etc..The products I like & use are the extreme chassis black..engine paint..tank tone..& crystal clear (for protecting bolts brake lines alum parts)

Looks like the color of the car I could see on mine the original color of the car on the frame rail..you can see hints in the picture of that color in between the valance & fender joint.

Whose to question Bob Perkins. They also repainted the trunk side of the folding seat trap door and did not properly overspray the spatter paint on it. I asked the judge after the car was judged just to confirm.

Got most of the seam sealing done inside the engine bay last night a few more spots to do today..Then prep for paint..nice stuff the sem 2 component 39377,,Just have to work very quick & alot of taping prior..Mask both sides of the seam..Apply..smooth with your finger..pull tape every 12 inches as you go..then smooth again with your finger dipped in denatured alcohol..
