Engine Compartment Restoration

 

 

The engine compartment was really in need of some restoration.  What a better time to do it than with the engine out?

 

The firewall is almost gray from age.

 

The wiring harnesses were a real mess but still

functioned.

 

With a little cleaning, some paint, and some parts replaced she’ll be back looking like new.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I took everything you could out of the engine compartment and either blasted and painted it or replaced it.  I think I fell into the restorer’s trap of “well, since I have that off, I ought to go ahead and restore (fix) that”.  My simple restoration soon took on a life of its own and kept growing.  I’m happy with the job, though.  I really did enjoy the process (especially now that it is over).
