View Full Version : Engine Bay Painting

01-08-2009, 12:10 AM
Hey all,

Im thinking while I have the engine out, I want to paint the bay. Im planning on painting the whole car black once the engine is all done and ready. So I figure, lets do the bay while im waiting on a couple parts to arrive.

Now, the brake lines are in the way. Should i mask them off and paint around them? Or go through the whole process of removing them? Id rather not remove them.

Also, do I need to remove and frame/body parts? Any other tips?

Just wrap them up with newspaper or something and tape around them..

Make sure you tape off the fenders and everything really well.

foil is great, use masking tape, blue painters tape. Good to go. Good luck, post pics up as you go!

Hummmm. Id really like to paint behind the brake booster. Is it a real pain to remove?
