I got a load more bits done over the last few days. The injector rail and alternator are now on the engine. The driveshafts are stripped and the gearbox is ready to be shot blasted. Ive also removed the loom and retaped it back up nicely! So over the weekend there will be big progress hopefully!

Just give it a sand to get the worst off then etch it and spray it silver. Thats all ive done and im pleased with it. I wouldnt degrease it!

Whenever we get an alternator reconed at work it always comes back in silver pain so i cant see the sanding/painting hurting it.
