I finished painting my transmission and water pump. This was my first time painting an epoxy primer, base and clear automotive paint. It came out nice. I did a lot of smoothin on it before paint for aerodynamic reasons. I used a Fuji 5 stage turbine paint sprayer. I felt the need to replace all the bolts with polished stainless steel ARP bolts. This is a built Tremec TKO 600 with mid-shift kit going behind my little 292 in my 53 1/2 ton pickup. Thank you for your time.

If you are missing one component, you'll need an abundance of the others two.

Pretty, yes, but aerodynamic? Not so much. You left all those fins on. wink

Looks good. Is that a coffee maker on the floor? Painting that, also?

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
