Well, it was POR-15 ENGINE enamel, so in theory... Still, gave me hell. At least today is redemption day! Engine is in grey prime and looking good. Will bundle cardboard and junk mail while it's drying and then spray the Plastikote....Bob, POR isn't like marvel mystery oil, you can't use it for everything, lol...
I am not too pissed about it. Now that it is all together, it gives me a reason to turn wrenches on it. Since it isn't going to be the best of weather for cruising around (thanks to the machine shop) It will help keep me occupied for a few days.Sorry to hear about the oil leaks, if it were me, that would roast my nuts...
About the POR-15, I had no idea that they made engine specific paint, soooooo, my bad. On a related note, I took the car out for another spin today (despite the oil leak) and after 4 or 5 heat cycles now, the paint on the heads still looks unchanged. Maybe that epoxy primer with help keep the paint from burning off. I guess I will see in time. Now I am off to put the car up on jack stands. If I don't make the car immobile now I will just keep wanting to tool around the neghborhood in it. Thats not good because I have to many things I need to do to it, fix the oil leak, retorque the heads, adjust valves, and fix a water leak in the pump, among a few other small things.Well, it was POR-15 ENGINE enamel, so in theory...
