Hey Guys / GalsÖ
Sorry this is so long but Iím really having a hard time deciding what to do! I could really use some opinions!
As some of you may know, I repainted my 327 with the POR engine kit a little over month or so ago. Well, to be honest, after 3 coats of the enamel, Iím really not happy with it and want to repaint it. (Not with POR!)
The thing isÖ I didnít totally strip the block down. Just took off the heads up, timing chain cover and oil pan. The motor was built 10 years ago, .030+, and hasnít seen that many miles.
I really donít want to mask it off and paint over the POR and I donít want to strip it down with paint stripper again. Since this is the first part of the rebuild Iím doing, I want to do it right so Iím thinking about tearing it down and having it boiled. Questions:
1) Can / should I still use the cam bearings or have them replaced?
2) If I have it boiled, will I have to have the cyls bored again?
3) What brand spray paint should I use???
4) What else am I not thinking of? I'm really torn and just not thinking right!
Do you guys think this is over-kill for a paint job???
Please bounce some comments my way!
Thanks and best regards,
