Whilst the shell is away for blasting etc, I would like to get into degreasing/paint stripping and repainting the engine and tranny.
Are there any tried and true methods plus product for this job?
Normal paint stripper ok to use?
I spent half my money on mustangs, mustangs and more mustangs. The other half I wasted on mustangs - and an Effie.
I used a wire cone on a grinder and lots of elbow grease, then cleaned with thinners to get any grease off.
AND, you need to prep the enviro booth carefully, compliance testing any tree limbs you intend using as hangers and ensuring the blowers (ie: wind direction) is suitable to the product you intend spraying. there are a few on here who are 'enviro booth certified' who can assist with any further details.
Brother Steve goes a bit OTT re his spray prep but we forgive him as his car is Red, which I assume is the colour you intend painting the block and tranny ;-)

I had the plumber fit a tap to my hot water unit next to my garage and then I purchased a length of washing machine hot water hose, fitted a jet nozzle and that works a treat too....hot water plus the pressure with just a touch of compressed air for that final dry off.
