When I saw this MK1 Honda Civic post, I know this is something that would make our cars shine under the hood. From a complete engine compartment respray to having the engine cradle cleaned and resprayed a typical black, to having the motor and transmission detailed in a shiny new silver paint job. Other details include having the breather and bits done in a classic touch up.
This is a job I want to tackle when I get to this stage, I’m jealous your engine looks so clean I could eat off it. This guy has done such an aw-sum job detailing all the bits that make this car look so perfect. However I could not help but notice the new camber plates.
My head gasket went on my car a couple of weeks ago so ?I figured this was a good time to do a bit of work while I have the engine out.
I thought I would start a topic on my progress to document it and get some feedback from everyone.
This is just before I started to restore the engine bay.
Cleaned a bit
Stripped and cleaned up ready for body shop.
Jump way ahead to the end result, Jon has put a lot of work into cleaning everything up, Looks outstanding to say the least. From pulleys to cross members and wheel wells are cleaned and painted to perfection.
I like how he detailed the oil filler cap in yellow for high visibility that gets your attention , that’s something I did to my prelude including the dip sticks.
Follow up on the fine details of this engine bay restoration on the forum.
