I'm looking at the same stuff myself mate. Been speakin to a lad I deal with at Andrew page about bga gasket sets. Still need to find rings and main bearings. Might try the machine shop/engine builders my head is getting skimmed at as he builds b series motors for some race series, can't remember the name of it right now. I'll let u know how I get on.

So got my engine cleaned up and honed!

Image

So on choice of paint! I didn't want the usual silver maybe a black! I came across this mistake whilst doing bits on my jordan and liked the look of it! Basic do the usual de grease prep all the good stuff!
Lay down a base coat! Leave it till its just touch dry! And lay your colour! You should get a reaction from the two paints and get a cracking effect! Leave to dry and lacquer it!

Iv done it on a few bits of the cj yelleow and red!
But this is the first time on anything big!
The only thing im worried about is iv never done it to high temp paint! So hopefully it will stick when she gets warm!

May not be to every ones taste but i like it! Pics dont do it justice!

C+c welcome as always

I would like to advise you on redoing the brake lines in steel instead of copper.. The copper cannot withstand the pressure inside brake lines and they slowly expand and degrade your stopping power over time. Copper lines are illegal in Slovenia and you don't pass MOT. Otherwise, really good work my friend! Keep up :top:
