That shit ain't cheap! Good luck.

Engine bay resprayed. I went to a local auto body supply store and had them make me a spray can of Alpine White II. I prepped the engine bay by scuffing it up and degreasing it, I wasn't going for a show car quality respray. I didn't spray the firewall as it will likely get covered in DEI gold foil. It's super nice not having to look at all the cosmoline anymore, I worked for years to get rid of as much as possible but this is way better!

Motor went back in last night. It took me about an hour working by myself, it's nice not having a core support in the way. I am going to work on the wiring until my finances are looking better.
