I went to the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix this weekend for an hour or two. I wasn't really feeling it this year so I didn't stick around long.
Wrinkle red on Jason's Subaru
Wrinkle red on an Acura NSX
Maserati steps it up... wrinkle red AND wrinkle gold. Wrinkle motherfucking gold!
Back to business.
I got some new parts and supplies. For the satin black, I'm switching from PPG Omni M148 flattening agent to PPG OneSource SU4985.
I had to plug the holes in the A/C compressor without blocking any paint flow around the area.
So I fashioned this contraption, which seals the oil in and masks all surfaces and threads simultaneously, without blocking any paint.
I got a bunch of parts sanded, wiped down, and hung in the paint booth, but I ran out of time to paint tonight.
Thermostat housing, A/C receiver-dryer, and A/C compressor
Lower timing cover and starter motor
Some random stud and the serpentine belt tensioner arm.
I hauled the block back into the paint booth. I didn't install off-road tires on my engine cart, so I used the forklift to cruise through the grass.
Here I'm deep in thought, wondering how difficult a propane SR20DET swap would be.
