Graeme: Have you thought about using some kind of protectant underneath after you had stripped everything to Original Paint? I used kerosene (process related to me by an old heavy equipment operator) on a rag and wiped down the whole underneath of my '71 Monte Carlo. It dries to same sheen as original and can be recoated as necessary to keep the look fresh. It works well on firewall, radiator support and inner wheelwells also!

Great tip Don...

I was thinking of simply waxing the bottom end with some Meguiar's product and protecting what's there. Likely the same with the firewall. The car will never see water as long as I own it so not terribly concerned about any moisture. My shop is also a heated dry storage garage and our climate here is dry for the most part so it's in really good hands here as far as preservation goes.

Didn't get too much done the past week, but back onto some cleaning and detailing today. I started cleaning up the original brake lines to get rid of all the black paint that was sprayed on them. Chemicals did a good job of softening it up and the wire wheel did the rest. Nothing too sparkling, just enough to eliminate the spray paint that covered them prior. These will be going back on as seen. I also painted the water pump which was the last of the engine parts being corrected. This one is dated J-10-9 More coming soon...

Spent the rest of the day detailing the engine bay and cleaning up the original booster. Used some cleaner and a brass brush to knock most of the surface rust off the front face. Next up will be the 309 master cylinder and the original lid. I also got this receipt emailed to me by George Kulp. He's the one that rebuilt the 302 back in 2015. I'd say he has a good memory as the parts are exactly as he described from memory when we spoke a couple of months ago. Nice of him to send me this copy of the receipt. I wish I could get a small block rebuilt for this kinda dough nowadays. (chuckling at that thought)

Taking a break to watch the Daytona race here today but made some more progress cleaning up the engine bay prior to the race. The driver's side fender is now clean with a couple of small spots to hit one more time before I get to the cross member and control arms next. I'm really liking this car more and more every day, and love how it's cleaning up. Hopefully all y'all are not getting tired of all the pictures. (lol)
