ok , so now we're done with the fitting of the engine .. time to make it perdy
first I started with removing the pan .. for those whom don't know , the original oil pan and pick up on the 5Vzfe wont fit this application . so as you saw in the previous pictures , I already powder coated the pan I need .. With the pan off , I can now drill the new dipstick location .. and install the new holder installed with a little red LOCKTITE just for "piece of mind"
also removed the "front end" to replace with all new parts new oil pump , water pump , timing belt , bearings ect .......

Looking really good Corey. Cant really see the yellow in the pic, is it that bad? Looks good on the pics, nice to have the ability to powder coat in your shop.
You really do quality work, its amazing. If I was ever paying someone to do a vehicle for me you would be hands down the person I would go to. Its nice when you see someone put all the extra efforts in to a project. Cant wait to see this when its done.

thanks Kevin ... yeah .. it's a little yellow . this morning when I went in ,I was able to handle it .. I'm not happy with it .. it definitely has a "yellow tinge" to it , don't know why , maybe I layed it on to heavy . this stuff is a lot of trial and error , always a learning curve to it
