you have no idea ryans mouth skills, they are mad tight. and yes he polished me up while i was completing its insides. I pretty much exploded onto the engine with cleaning fluid.

thats....ummm...great to know....i helped put one strut on that car...and both the front wheels...and mine runs already. the power steering belt is a 050365 in the gates brand for no ac. i dont remeber the leter but its the same as the alternator belt. i had to go to the parts store 5 times to get the right one. and maybe if i get power back tonight ill work in the dark.

I'm curious to what kind of paint you used to paint your engine bay. Was it normal acrylic or high heat?

I'm doing mine in the next couple of days before my engine goes back in and I'm not sure wheter I should use high heat or normal. What do you guys think?

I used normal paint on my celica engine bay and after 5 months it still lookes the same. I used rustoleom on this one, due to the slight surface rust i had to sand off some places ijust didnt want it to come back. It said on the can resist temp up to 200 so im sure its ok. Thanks for all the props. Ill get more pics this weekend.
