    Engine rebuild in a can (pics)

    Decided that while everything is off the engine for the cam swap that I would try and paint the block and whatnot. I think it turned out pretty well considering the engine is still in the car

    Before:





    After:





    I still got a ways to go (like painting the rest of the engine bay!) but that's all I did for today

    Seriously though- big improvement man! If you could do something about that plastic overflow can it would be even better but those don't clean up very well. Maybe take it off, drain it and spray something inside it to clean it- something harsh.
