I found my gas leak, power washed my gas tank cover to strip the paint and am trying to figure out where I will locate my battery tray.

I stripped down a 5S block to prep it for the machine shop. :)

Worked more on the 5S block. Drilled the coolant passages and blocked off the oil feed for the balance shafts.

I thought about my AT, that's about all I did to it. It might be time to actually work on it.

My 5S block and 3S head are ready for the machine shop. I just need to order some stroker pistons from ATS and I will be ready to build it.

Since I have not posted in this section, here's a rundown of the latest things I have been doing. Been busy.

ST165
The block is at the machine shop getting cleaned, bored and honed.
Gathering parts for the rebuild.
Suspension pieces got factory bushings pressed off/ Polyurethane pieces going in soon after.
Valve cover getting powdercoated (dark gray)
Misc items getting powdercoated as well (brackets, mounts etc)
Subframe getting prepped for painting.
Devising a dual pump fuel system (two Walbros, Y set up, etc)...

Will be stripping interior soon. (contemplating full stripping of interior, remove oem sound deadning material, paint (sinlge stage urethane), then dynamat some sections. I want to spray it myself. Any suggestions for which paint gun to use? I want to do a good job, and know single stage is somewhat forgiving, and the fact that it's white helps a bit (plus it will be covered in carpet anyways).

I need some opinions on this. I have most interior pieces for a full conversion from blue to black (minus dashboard and a few panels here and there). I had a clean black one, and regret selling it :doh: . Now I must resort to either sourcing a black dashboard from a GTS at the junkyard or dye this one. I already dyed some plastic pieces with SEM dye, and works great. I haven't done the dashboard yet fearing the possibility of keeping or going back to blue, just in case I want the interior to stay blue (weak chance of that happening, but one never knows).
I dont mind the blue interior, but prefer black. Any opinions if I should stick to blue, and save the black pieces for a rainy day (other Alltrac that may need it in the future... :P ) or maybe cover the dash in a different material altogether.

By the way, does anyone have a reputable place that will thermal coat the factory manifold in the Southeast? I thought of Swain Tech coatings in NY, but if anyone has one closer, and does good work, I'd appreciate it.

Frantz,

I think I remember someone local talking about thermal coating. Can't remember if it was here or on the MR2 forum.
It might have been Todd.
