Terry the Lead machinist at Autosport is a long time friend. He use to build all me race motor's. He's waiting for me to tear the head off my 00 VR so he can check it for me. BTW Whatya doin with your old auto ?
If anything you should be looking to use an 04 & later Triple layer HG. Normally I would say to have the block O Ringed, but I don't know if it can be done to these blocks. You need to find out if your Block is warped. (More than likely your head is now fine) Straight edge teh block & check the center cylinders
Spraying is Very easy. . . . . . . The hard part is the prep. Never been big on ordering paint offline. You can get Dupont or Nason (lower line of Dupont) for your BC. . . . . . .& Mipa CC run's about 125.00 a sprayable gallon. Get a used hood & fender & do some practicing.
I would have him check the block, If the heads fine & it lost compression . . . . . . . .Sound's like it blew before, & if these blocks get To hot it can warp the center of the block causing you to blow HG after HG. if it's only marginally warped you can use an 04 & newer triple layer HG to help it seal. We use to O ring(Saab) blocks with copper wire if we were going to run high boost (28-36 #'s) don't know if you can do it to these block's being they have the gap around the cylinder. I may find out in a few weeks tho ! Best of luck with it !
There's also Body sho supply wharehouses that can put your factory color in a rattle can for you. I know they do single stage, not sure about BC CC. But you could always pick up a cheap gun from Sear's or somewhere.
No, the DS is another guy's. He has a 66 Saab 96 completely stripped on saw horses to the left. You can see my double stack tool box in the back ground.
He Never sell's anything. lol He's also color blind so he likes bright Bright color's. & he also knows I can reshoot it white for him if he wants to go back after I shoot it green. He own's probly 30-40 cars, mostly old 3 cyl 2 stroke Saabs 1953 92b's a few late 60's Sonnets, an open wheel Saab race car & a Factory Saab 99 Rally car. & a 66 Mini
