Well, Im half way stripping my car and I am in the near future gonna paint my 59 galaxies engine compartment. Im not taking the body off the frame because of Ive never done this before, and have nobody to guide me through it. Come to think about it. I dont even know if my teach would let me do this!Anyway, I was just wondering if anybody had any tips on Cleaning up the engine compartment. Anything really....painting, cleaning... Whatever u might find helpful. Im kinda jumping into this restoration and its my first. So im kinda Expecting some crap to go wrong in the middle of it. Oh and by the way. I was thinking about painting the car a nice color on the outside. But a simple 2 stage black would b fine.(because I can fix it if its 2 stage.) And I want to be able to spray it out of a spray gun. I really am confused with this crap and Im hoping I can get some good ideas!
