    Langy, great to see you haven't forgotten about this thread :hug:

    How does your mate make the decals, they look great and I need a couple for a drill press I'm refurbing.

    Cheers

    Jim

    Well with the Willys tucked up for the winter i managed to get back onto this project, been doing bits on it over the last couple of months but nothing worth posting, a lot of the time has been taken up in machining and porting & polishing the heads, they are away being bead blasted and then i can paint them.
    The short motor is now together but i didn't take any pics as it boring stuff like gapping the rings etc etc.
    Brief rundown of the spec is smoothed and polished crank, MTS H beam rods that were polished & shot peened and magnafluxed and fitted with ARP bolts, Pistons are KB hypereutetic and give 9.5-1 CR, Rings are Total Seal moly plasma. All were fully balanced.

    I picked up a new water pump and removed all the various lumps & bumps and generally smoothed it all off, Then it got 2 coats of black Epoxy primer and 3 coats of 2K Moneyshot colour.

    The steel shaft stub of the water pump boss stuck out slightly so a small rounded cover was added to the cover plate, only a small thing but it looks a lot tidier now.

    Christ on a bike your ears must have been burning fella.:laughing:

    I was going to dig this thread up not 5 minutes ago and ask if you had any time to do any more:cool:

    Your finish reminds me of the Kitchenaid Espresso Machine not 6' from where I'm sat. ( I love my expresso:hug:)

    Sort of Art Deco.. refined

    Brilliant work as ever, is it just standard 2K paint or something special and heat resistant ??

    It's just ordinary 2k Tony, it lasts much longer than any other type of paint on an engine, even after 10 years they still look the same, on some engines that have an exhaust port that projects slightly you sometimes get slight discolouration at the port where the paint darkens, it happens because of the lack of metal around the port which acts as a heat sink .
    It's imperative the surface is super clean and primed with epoxy primer.
