I went through and scraped the chunck thick grease off as much as I could then I presure washed it with my rinky-dink electric presure washer, let it air dry, then used CD-2 Engine Detailer, let that sit for about 10 minutes or so, presure washed it again to get the de-greaser off and painted it. The paint is Rust-Oleum Specialty High Heat (which is suppose to resist up to 1200 degrees Farenheit. the top end is next but I'm going to have that low psi sand blasted and then paint it with the same paint. The valve cover, Intake manifold, water neck, oil pan, oil cap and water/fuel/oil pump assembly covers will be polished as soon as I get my dad's polish and buffing wheel. The valve cover will have High Heat gloss black paint in the little grooves that are around the oil cap, the little O-P-E-L on the valve cover will also be painted black, and above that I am going to put the opel blitz symbol in black (may even invest in having aluminum weld built up and milled out to have it raised like the opel letters. The pulleys will be powdercoated black. The Exhaust manifold (or headers if I end up buying some) and the rest of the exhaust system all the way to the muffler will be Jet Hott coated black. And all of the bolts that mount parts and covers to the engine will be parkerized (An old Harley-Davidson trick). I'm going to put a chromed alternator, starter, and A/C Compressor (I'm making my own a/c unit out of parts I have from Honda's and Acura's I have parted out over the years) on it. Steel braided lines and black lume covers on all the wiring that will be seen ( I'm going to hid as much of the wiring in the engine bay as possible, sort of like an Orange County Chopper). A lot of detail work for the engine bay but hopefuly I can carry that on for the rest of the car.
