(i also posted this same thread in the inline six section)
so i just took the block to the machine shop yesterday. so nows the time to clean up the engine bay a bit. so i have two options try and clean it with soap and water or getting some flat black spray paint!
how would you guys do it?
my engine bay has what looks to be the rust proof stuff that comes from the factory or they do it as an up sale at the dealer.
My dad had a '73 Olds Cutlass Supreme years and years ago with an all white vinyl interior. It had sat in a barn and it had a bunch of mildew everywhere, and Mean Green took every bit of it off and left that interior looking like new. My dad thought at first glance it was just some cheap store brand stuff that wouldn't work very good...it was quite the opposite lol
Go at it with some soap and a scrub brush. Do that until the soap wont take anything else off. Then go get some laquer thinner and wipe it all down with that. You may be able to get a color that is close from the parts store and then paint it up.
Your truck looks exactly like mine did before I stripped it all down and painted it. Now mine looks better than it did from the factory.
