Head painted

After more masking than the block required, I got the head painted today. I’ve not taken any step-by-step photos though, largely because it appears very similar from when the primer is finished to when the clear coat is applied.


In between coats, I also managed to strip some of the bits I need from the current engine:

  • Sump
  • Oil pickup
  • Coil pack
  • HT leads
  • Thermostat housing
  • Water pump inlet
  • Fuel rail + injectors

Some assembly lube should arrive this week so I hope I can get cracking on putting this all together soon. Hope I haven’t lost any bits…
