Winkle Painting Engine Parts

I started working on a 330GT Interim 2+2 a couple weeks ago, and the owner and I decided to paint some of the engine parts correctly while I had them out for a valve adjustment. Some of the old wrinkle paint was already flaking off, but I took the rest of it off with some paint stripper and some power washing.

The weather was on my side for wrinkle painting last week so I was able to bake the parts in the midday sun for the wrinkle paint to take full effect.

Heavy coats of wrinkle paint was applied from a spray can, almost to the point of running, and as the paint was drying, the paint would wrinkle. I can’t wait to put these parts back on the car to see how good the engine compartment will look!
