Some updates! Made the trip down to Inline Pro to drop off the new motor for a nice refresh! I also got lucky and sold my supercharger kit, fueling, and my stock f22c to one guy from Taiwan. He is having Inline Pro build the car for him so I decided to deliver the whole deal together. Just needed to get the engines ready to transport and all the supercharger parts surran wrapped.
I needed to build a second engine cradle for my new motor so I copied the setup that I already had. (2) 2x4's and (1) 2x6 did the trick along with a small box of 3" screws.
After that was built, it was time to load up for the 11 hour round trip to Inline Pro and back the next morning.
Everything worked out as it should and we had ourselves a long, productive day.
I then needed to pick up the pace on getting this engine bay ready for the shave and paint job. I decided to strip down the entire bay. I decided to do this since the bay was painted once before and I don't want too many layers on there. So what better than to start with a bare metal bay.
I picked up some paint stripper from Home Depot in the aerosol cans to help with the breakdown process. I sprayed the stripper on heavy to see how I needed to tackle this. I waited 30 minutes give or take and started scraping. Came off fairly easy, but was not perfect by any means.
I then sprayed on another coating of this stuff. I went ahead and loaded it up and used up the whole can. This time around everything was bubbling and lifting directly off the body of the car. Here we go.
I called it quits here at around 1:00am. I have to get the parts off the firewall still, (booster, clutch master, stock brake lines, cruise and throttle cable) Once all this is out I can put the hammer down on getting this whole thing stripped and ready to go. We're shooting for March 1st for the bay it we'll see how that goes.
