Painting Headers, Valve Covers, Fuel Rail and Coil Pack Racks.

Hello all,

Well I'm finally in the process of re-assembly on my broken Z.

I recently painted some parts that will not actually see the car for about a month but they sure do look nice. Here are some pics.













More to come on the final assembly of the engine.

Dang, you are a good looking man. LOL

Seriously though, great job. It's all coming together now and those little details are what makes it YOUR car.

Looking good, Dave! It must be nice to have a spray booth handy!

It is; all you have to do is give the best twenty years of your life to Uncle Sam and you too can have acces to a paint booth for 5 bucks an hour and shop at the Commisary. Lol

Oddly, I never think of the auto hobby shop for little jobs. It makes sense though.

Re: Painting Headers, Valve Covers, Fuel Rail and Coil Pack Racks.

I hope before all that header painting that you closely looked for any fine weld cracks to 02 bung or collector as the image seems to look like lots of carbon tracks and if any leaks would cause 02s to report false lean AFR which means PCM would falsely command the injectors to flow too rich.

Thanks but I think it's just the lighting when I took the pic. The headers were solid.

Good job! Those are going to look awesome on your car

Here is the pic that got removed.


I think this will look great under the hood. I'm going to paint the throttle body to match the fuel rail.
