In the Nov/Dec 2012 Newsletter, I included an 'Engine Painting Tips' article from my experience over the years and thought I would save  as a separate document to reference from the website.

I have updated the article a bit and saved as a PDF file which you can now access, save and print by clicking on this link: Engine Painting Tips

Hopefully this will help some of you in your restoration of your 390 & 429 engines.

Jason.

Tim, generally after 24 hrs to make sure the paint is dry and started curing. I will have to add that to the write up sometime. Jason

Jason, how long after the final coat do you wait before putting the engine parts in the oven?
Comment by Rob on March 10, 2013 at 8:37pm
Great info.
Comment by Jason Edge on January 4, 2013 at 9:40pm

2 to 3 cans of engine primer, gloss black  and blue engine paint, and 1 can of the hi temp primer & exhaust paint. Of course the more coats you add the more more paint. I generally do 2 coats of each....and bake and cure as indicated in write-up.

Great post about the engine paint colors
Any chance you can give an idea as to how many of each can you did use ?
( That break dancing is exhausting stuff--LOL. )
Happy New Year

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

Posted by Jeff Kinzler on November 3, 2019 at 10:00pm 9 Comments

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
