Received Wheels and Continued Masking Engine for Paint

We received our wheels from Factory Five today. These are the 17″x9″ front and 17″x10.5″ rear Halibrand replica wheels. I pulled them all out to make sure they look good, but didn’t get any pictures of them.

Afterward, I finished masking the block. Other than a final cleaning, this is ready for paint.

I thoroughly cleaned the timing chain cover and started masking it for paint. The process I’ve been using is to use tape around the perimeter of each section with regular masking tape since it sticks better than the blue tape, then using a razor blade to slice to the exact edge. Larger areas are covered with blue tape or aluminum foil. This is pretty time consuming, but it should produce a nice finished product.
