Yeahh, I know. It’s not a big block, but I simply could not resist placing that in there! Guess what guess what guess what??!!! We started on the Engine with the Dart engine heads we have!! Woohoo!! This week, we put some final touches on the transmission and painted our new upgraded engine heads “Chevy Engine Orange”. Ohhh yeah!
First, we wiped this stuff called acetone on the engine heads before paint or primer to prevent any paint defects due to oil-of any kind. Fun garage fact for the ladies: Acetone is an excellent nail polish remover. So if you’re out of nail polish remover, then no need to fear, just dig into your dad’s/husband’s garage and you’ll probably find some in there.
Now before the guys run off screaming for the hills, we then sprayed the heads with primer that we got from Menards. A day later, we sprayed the engine heads with “Chevy Engine Orange” paint that we ordered from Eastwood. After a few coats, these heads look more beautiful than anything!
Not much to say today, but rest assured that progress is being made. Tune in to the blog next Sunday to find out what my dad and I work on next! Psst…… the picture above is a sneak peak! ‘Cause not every teenage girl gets to work on a Corvette! Thanks for reading and for the support! God bless ya’ll! ~Jackie
