The top isn't painted yet. It'll be black when it's done. I'm using a rattle can to paint. Once the primer cures then I'll sand it down. Then paint, more sanding. Then finally clear and more sanding.

Rattle cans and 240s go together like peanut butter and jelly

Yup. I've spent a lot of tjne sanding everything down between Layers.
We will see I have only spent 60$ I think on all the paint and primer and sand paper so far.

If prep is good then yes rattlecan can look really nice however the only real difference is its not as durable and also does not stay nice for long as compared to automotive paint. Hence the price but for me that's awesome because once it starts to fade guess what? New color! Lol

So the last few weeks has sucked. We installed a oil gauge and found my motor reading 0 oil pressure. Yet it hasn't told any knock knock jokes quite yet. We are swapping oil pumps to see if that fixes my issue. If it does then I'll drive on this KA till it blows up. Also tubing my front end.

So bearings are scored. The last shop to touch my motor over torqued the caps on the connecting rods and crank... That led to no oil running through the bearings and causing them to become all scored up. Yet not a single one spun or blew up But I'm doing a full or rebuild on the motor now.
Might as well start fresh with the motor because I'm nervous for what else they fudged up. Hopefully have the car back running by March so I can break the motor in and go drifting.

So it's now April and the motor is still in pieces. But alas all is not lost. Rotating assembly is coming back from the machine shop after being zero balcanced. By next week hopefully I'll have a running 240 again. I went with a full build that can handle 600hp. I'll never seen that much but I'd like atleast 400 when all said and done.

400hp on a n/a 240? Unless it's a v8 I'm guessing forced induction

Lol I think he was saying that as an endpoint, but he also snatched up a set of its and was talking n/a build prior.
