Question. When I built my Cobra in 2000, I used the stock FE aluminum bellhousing but now that I have a new Quicktime, can I use the original clutch fork, or does the Quicktime require a different one ?

The QuickTime bell housing is designed to use the original clutch fork.

I need to start painting the block, bell and my Tremec. I called a handful of body shops asking prices, but it's ridiculous what they want ! It would be easier to move the Cobra some where else, out of the way to paint. A neighbor says I can move it into one of his 2 car garages, but his driveway is steep, so not sure how to do that than get a driver and 4-5 men to push it.

My paint gun is old, so I would need to buy another or barrow one. Also need a air drier for my air compressor's line, epoxy primer, reducer, single stage paint etc.
I can erect a frame using pvc pipe, 2x2's or 4x4 wood, but a roll of 4ml clear plastic, clamps, tape. I have one window to place a box fan and seal the plastic around it. I have a two burner propane heater. It's really been cold here !

The expense can get up to that of paying a body shop, but getting the parts there and warmed up high enough to paint will take a 2-3 days. Cold steel & aluminum can sweat a lot of condensation, for some quite time.

There are lots of good rattle can engine paint solutions. If you already had a paint booth available to you I could see using a gun and compressor but since you don't, I would use Dupli-color, SEM or Eastwood engine paint. You are looking at a lot of money to set up just to spray the engine and driveline. And if you plan to use urethane paint, yes - you are going to have to get everything up to above 60 deg and I wouldn't spray any catalyzed paint inside without a breathing air mask and compressor.

I went to autobody school back in 1983, but retired due to bad health. I still have my Sharpe siphon gun. lol

I built and painted my Cobra in 2001, at the paint shop my brother-in-law worked at, but the owner put a stop at that and he even makes the employee's pay for the booth time !

It also would make me rebuild my old leaky Binks filter/regulator that is 35 years old, or replace it with a modern system. I love to paint, so trying my hand of a new Devillbis HVLP guns. They have a 2 gun start or finish line system that are pretty nice guns. I wouldn't paint a entire car with them, but for my needs which includes DIY home products, they'll be fine.

I checked out the rattle cans and bomb type but, I can't find a matching color, and if I had my local auto body supply mix several cans for me, that can get expensive too. Plus, you'll never cover the material thickness of a paint gun. I painted my engine and bell the first time with just a single stage paint and 10 years later, it still looked great when I sold it. Using a base system, the clear will brown up because of the heat.

I insulated my garage very,....well, so when temps are even single digits outside, I've never had my garage temps lower than 37 or so. My infared propane heater works very well, but I'd must be done painting by late evening as I would never run it over night. To heat up the parts and to help bake-in the paint, I 'll use our sprint car engine heating blanket.

I can also use our portable dehumidifer (don't tell my wife) if needed for heated -air grain drying.

If,.....everything works out with my health and temps, I should get the project done in one day. Just wish I could wait for much warmer temps,.....but I can't.

Some great news.

A local muscle car restore shop is going to help me paint all the parts, as a advertising trade. Clean, spray with self etching primer and top coat, matching my body color.

I have the intake off (and already sold) water pump etc. It will be ready to load up in my truck after I lay cardboard in the oil valley and wrap in saran wrap and lawn bags.

I couldn't help but set the injection on top just to see hoe it'll look.

I really like my Craftsman roll away chest with all it's trays, removable top as a small bench, drawers, electrical power, holes on the side for drills, screwdrivers, wrenchs, sockets etc, and the peg board on the side. Really,.....happy with it.

Anyway, if my health stays well, I should have them all painted by the weekend !

Try re-sizing your pictures. Edit them down to a smaller size and that may work.

Well, I painted the block, bell, inspection cover and Tremec painted my blue body color.
Used my new DeVilbiss "startingLine" series paint gun. Flowed and atomized very well.
Have pics, just need to set my main office computer back up and download them.

Also bought a old intake and Holley 4160 carb for $20, to break in my new, larger cam, then install my electronic stacked injection. Wish these computers had a "break in" mode.

Default Congrats to both bodies !

With a new Dove built motor, let's hope that new ticker is up for the excitement! Dove motors are no joke and still putting the power down. Congrats in both regards!

lol,...yep, can't wait to get it running. I thought I would have it running by now, but due to my bad health, everything is so,.....slow. I got the engine, bell and trans painted. I left it at the shop to cure, so I hope to bring it home this week.

Thanks buddy.
