Yet another step closer to completion. The weather is super muggy and progress is slow, but I still might get all of this stuff painted by Sunday night. A few tricks in this video showing how to prep an engine block for paint including masking and spraying self etching primer. My neighbor came over and taught me a cool trick to speed up masking the block.
