1. With the old 307 removed, it was time to give the chassis a much-needed cleaning. At some point over the course of the last six months, the old motor developed a fairly significant oil leak, resulting in the usual mess. After a good scrubbing with some foaming cleaner (non-toxic of course), it was time to start masking off what I didn’t want to paint. I like to use a variety of methods when it comes to masking off oddly shaped items like suspension components and the like. Plastic garbage bags, aluminum foil, and masking paper work great for covering all kinds of misshapen components as well as those whose surfaces don’t lend themselves to more traditional methods.
