5/24/11 Engine Paint

Not a whole lot to say here. Cleaned the gun, mixed the paint and shot the engine, rocker cover and oil pan. I'm pleased with the results. Tomorrow I'm going look at the parts in full sunlight to ensure good coverage. If I need to retouch, I'll mix up a little more paint and re-touch as needed. After that, these parts won't be touched for about 10 days.

After a closer inspection of the finished parts with a bright flashlight, it looks like there is sufficient paint coverage on the parts. Considering each part got at least two coats, it should have fully covered. I'll still double check tomorrow. It seems like the flash might have made some spots look light in the pictures..
