Nice work all way 'round .... great tips all in one place, the stuff one often forgets .... Krylon is an old favorite .... agree on Stant .... but I have to ask .... in your restoration .... did you find it?




Thanks for compiling / posting this!

One thing I'd add is there are different types of stainless steel hose clamps. Almost all of the ones you buy at an auto parts store have a stainless steel band, but the worm screw is plated steel and will rust.

I recommend you use the clamps that use a stainless steel worm screw as well. They are more expensive, and they're a bit harder to find, but to me anyway, they are worth it.

Yet again, another great post. Props to your HIO! Great work again!

This will definitely come in handy when I re-do my engine bay because it's currently full of dirt, straw, gravel and a boat-load of grease, still from the P.O. The interior was just as bad. Ashtray was over-flowing. Yuk!

I am going to try to sand and paint my inner fenders and radiator support tomorrow, weather permitting. I want it nice and clean when I put it back to the new 351 windsor. Been a long time since I had a nice shiny engine compartment.

A great heads up! Thanks for contributing.

All the chrome and flashy paint blinded me and no one noticed the engine. In summary, the image is proof you CAN polish a turd!!!!!

Thanks. EWWW on the ashtray. Psychologically for me, it is more fun/enjoyable to work on a clean rig. In fact, one of the first things I do is to clean out all the PO's crap... I even vacuumed it out so I can think with a clear head.

I'm working on another DIY post so stay tuned!!!

Do not try. Do!

Hiosilver, That FE engine compartment that you posted is the best I remember seeing in a truck in a long time. It's very tasteful with lots of attention to detail. I must be getting old because those pictures excited me more than a play boy.
The guy who did that compartment has run FE's for a while. Notice the use of cast iron manifolds as opposed to headers, the use of studs on the top side of the manifolds, and the heat shields. That engine compartment is my idea of perfect.

I share the same thoughts (except for the Playboy thing ). The engine detailing is super simple and super clean. It goes to show how bling, chrome, and a bunch of googaws (like neon lights or skull everywhere) aren't necessary.

Yep, the heat shields are typically long gone. The owner appears to have been very methodical in his approach.
