The quart of engine paint is enough to do 3 or more engines. I was worried about it also, and may have sprayed mine a bit thin but gave it 3-4 coats and ended up only using about a 25% of the quart can.I am looking at placing an order through them today or tomorrow. About how much of the chassis paint does it take to do the subframe? Also, I'm sure that the quart of ceramic engine paint will be more than sufficient, correct?
Just trying to stay on budget with this build.
Yeah, I tried to seal up all the channels inside and will be giving it a good cleaning before reinstallation. I plan to change the oil after a couple engine runs too.I'm sure you already know this, but really take care to make sure there is no media left behind on the valve cover. A couple of the shops that I took mine to refused to blast it for fear of media getting stuck in the ports and other areas only to come loose later down in to the engine. We ended up cleaning and baking it a couple of times before powder coating.
The Goblin frame engine/transmission mounts should accommodate either. I'm not sure about the clutch mount pedal mount, you should be able to tell by looking at your frame it to see if it's there.What I don't know is what kind of wiring hijinks I'd need to do, if any. Or is it better to just start from scratch with a manual car? I guess the other question - does the manual trans mount up to the same subframe/Goblin frame, or am I pretty much locked in at this point? Comparing my frame to the manual build logs here, it looks like the clutch master bracket is there regardless.
