    Got some work done tonight on my project (pics inside)

    Tonight I tackled getting my block clean of rust and then applied four coats of Ford Engine Blue paint to the block. Hopefully by the end of this week I'll have the engine fully assembled and in the car with drivetrain installed as well.

    Pics before it was wire-wheeled down all the way:













    Pics after the four coats of paint were applied to the block:

    PS: David Neibert, does this engine look like a junkyard engine anymore

    I personally like the look of a little bit of overspray here and there.

    Why the bright blue?

    everything that isn't painted blue on that motor is being replaced with new chrome/some black parts..it will look utterly beautiful when its done.

    Motor came out of a fully running wrecked '92 Sport Tbird with 50k miles on the clock. Engine is stock for now but I have just over $2k worth of parts for it sitting in my living room

    As Sean said once its done its going to look beautiful.

    Damon,

    No hot tanking needed for this motor. All I have to do is disassemble it and install all the new stuff.
