yup it is pretty bad, like the side is collapsed and there is cut and welded bits all over and was coated with like a solid 1/4 in of bondo. Anyway i started a new topic about that, so hopefully people will have something. Anyway, i could cut out and replace the skin i guess but that would be expensive to get a replacement skin and getting the contour right out of just a piece of sheetmetal wo

yes i realized that, obviously i was just testing the color i mixed up and i think it turned out good. So for painting do you want to go lighter and go with less pressure and less material? Sorry im going with the fact that you know more about painting that i do....which wouldnt take much...LOL Thanks Troy W

ok yes but i didnt know whether or not you have to take the head off completely so it doesnt warp it? I guess you would just loosen the one that you need to take off and then fix it and put it back on and tighten. then move on. i have unfortunately worked this engine over, or it has worked me over anyway........ Thanks Troy W
