While waiting for a bit warmer weather, I decided to start polishing covers and such. This is first step on valve covers. Poly abrasive wheel followed by fine abrasive (think ScotchBrite) wheel in air tool, followed by felt wheel in air tool (peanut grinder) and various compounds. Both covers just need more time in the last step, but it takes quite some time to get it the way I want it then. Look a lot better than the corroded and scratched-up pieces that I started with. The badges are off to keep them from getting messed up.

Yes to get true polish flat surface ...the work is huge ....but once it’s gotten good it’s seems way easier to keep that way ....I’ve done so much furniture building and fine trim work ...kitchen cabinets and such ..I hardly do anything to my stuff ....I always like to used the most aggressive tools along with the highest degree of touch and feel ...burnished old wing covers are hard to beat

Making more progress. Felt wheel on the high speed air grinder with a little rouge followed by hand polish with Mothers Mag and Aluminum polish does great. The one in front is (for the most part) finished. The other still needs more work.Image

Looks great! Polishing can be quite the chore, but the results are awesome!

Polished the cam belt cover backing plates yesterday. Not all that visible, so did't spend as long on them. This morning, I finished off engine block cleaning with Scrubbing Bubbles followed by isopropyl alcohol. Then, I rolled it onto its left side and painted the bottom and right side. I'm real pleased with the color. It will probably set like this until we get back from Florida as it is supposed to cure real well before any rough handling. Then, I'll roll it to the other side and paint the left and top.

Looks excellent! :lust: What kind of paint is that? Did you brush it on?

This is POR15 engine paint. Brushed on with no primer. Brushes pretty easy and levels well. Some spots will want a second coat since the aluminum is so light colored.

Made it back from Titusville late last night. We got to see Falcon 9 with GovSat1 go up, and watched Falcon Heavy static hot fire testing. Pretty wore out today, but put the engine back on its cart so that I can finish painting it when the weather warms a bit.

Heads are now on. Belts installed and valves set. Water pipes installed with new thermostat. Hope to test compression on Saturday.
