so the engine respray went ahead. and no paint is complete without getting down to the nitty gritty, eh?

so first we cleared up all the wires, pipes, hosing etc etc to expose the bay, like this:

then we had a go at it, with brushes and kerosene spray. lots of gunk. good old majan.

and finally cleared up til the basecoat.

there's something about that white i tell you... :) even the baases are like wow...

indika had also had the engine mounts and brake servo sprayed. the little details. good.

they're now starting to piece it back together. bit by bit...

meanwhile, at my friends' workshop, the alloys were powder coated gloss white and baked! here they are! jizzing pants at the sight...
