After some disassembly… removing the intake manifold, radiator, generator and other misc parts to refurbish them, the rest of the engine was much more accessible for cleaning, so another round of “yellow soap” and the pressure washer was in order. What a difference a high-strength mix of the yellow soap made! Most of the black rattle-can spray paint from a previous engine-bay “detailing” came off the firewall. The rest was removed with a rag and some lacquer thinner. I cleaned off all the wiring too, along with the remaining black paint that was sprayed onto the brake booster, reveling the original cadmium plating. I re-sprayed some Krylon semi-flat black on the inner fenderwells and core support to give it a fresh look. This isn’t the “right” way to restore an engine-bay but for now, it will work. When the day comes to do a proper restoration on this car, the whole front clip will come apart so it can be done correctly. Some of the original Casino Cream paint came off the firewall where it was sprayed over seam-sealer, and then there are some areas where the factory globbed on a bunch of sealer around the wire inlets to seal the area from any heat getting through to the passenger compartment. These areas look ugly, but at least its overall better looking than the old black rattle-can. It looks like what you would expect to see when you pop the hood on a 50 year old car. Next time I get a chance to work on the car (hopefully this weekend) I’ll paint the engine with some POR-15 Engine Enamel. They sell it in various engine colors, including ’60 Buick Green!
