Paint, oil pan, cam cover, motor mounts

Another good day with the Lotus.

Striped the motor mounts and cam cover. Shot the oil pan with POR-15 etching primer. Shot the cam cover with wrinkle paint. Brushed POR-15 gray on oil pan, black on motor mounts.

Sunday update with rain

This is the time of year when my job allows me to take a day or two off every week. Sometimes even three. These good times end in January but till then I should have more than enough time to finish the Lotus.

Work today was impacted by rain. Lots of it. I picked up a 3/8 in. brass pipe thread plug needed to plug an extra heater hose connection on the new front cover. Decided not to put in all the plugs until after I paint the front cover. Should look more "factory" that way. Stripped the cam cover, had to work at the door opening and dodge the raindrops.

Next opportunity to work is Wednesday and by then then weather should be back to normal.
