4th phase begins Dec. 1, 2011- end of January 2012 in preparation for upcoming season
Black Beauty is in the air in the garage for the next two months as we clean the entire undercarriage, and bottom of engine.
The under side is hand painted with Por 15 Gloss Black chip resistant paint.
30 hours to complete this.
Cross Brace, transmission pan, painted with Por 15 Chevrolet red high temp engine paint. Once dry it gives the appearance of being sprayed on, or powdered coated.
Next step was to clean, and hand paint the engine itself in the car, painting every area I could get to laying on my back, or leaning over the front end using 15 different size hobby paint brushes, extensions, and mirrors, using Por 15 Chevrolet red high temp paint. This is a long, and tedious process, and something I wanted to do to set Black Beauty apart from the crowd, and give her that old school look.
