Yeah, it's a slooow process but at least I know it's going to be done correctly this time around because I'm either doing it myself or closely supervising everything. Regarding the painting with bed liner, take a look at the power steering pump and water pump after wirebrushing and sandblasting then painting with the Rustoleum spray can bed liner. Of course it looks even better in person and probably would look even better if I paid someone a few hundred dollars for a professional paint job but this way it's clean, durable, inexpensive, and I can retouch it myself down the line if needed. I just noticed I missed a spot on the water pump

My next goal after all this project is done is to learn a little more about compressor painting. My neighbor has been teaching himself but materials are expensive and his way of trial and error is adding up quickly! Advantage is that I'm learning from his mistakes.
