That was long before my time. I just know a lot of music is all.
I've been thinking about that as well. I looked at a couple of vids the other day. One used an air compressor to keep the valves up and the other had some sort of string method, but didn't really elaborate on it.Throw some valve seals in it while the motor is still in the truck, cheap fix.
that sounds incredibly tediousBasically I wet sanded a section of it with some fine scotch brite and a bucket of water to knock off a lot of the rust. The deeper down you go the redder and darker it gets. It really changes the look of the "patina". It actually smooths it and polishes it like buffing paint would since that's basically what I'm doing. I think I'll do it to the rest of the rusty areas and see how it looks.
It certainly can be. I believe I started doing it while I was waiting for the blue enamel on the floorboards to dry. I think I might try using a more abrasive scotch brite first and then going back over with the fine stuff though. It was coming off too slowly for how much there is. I just don't want to hit bare metal.that sounds incredibly tedious
