Looking for some advice, List:
I have the engine out of my '62 MGA Mk II for a rebuild and want to spruce
up the engine compartment before putting it back. I've chiseled thirty-nine
years of grease and dirt from the nooks and crannies, then squirted it down
with degreaser and hit it with a pressure washer. It's now pretty clean,
with bare metal showing here and there where the original (I think) black
paint is gone. I'm getting a little bit of thin, surface rusting, but I
expected that would happen.
I'm trying to decide what to do next. I figured I'd wipe it all down with
steel wool and either carb cleaner or lacquer thinner, then pain with a flat
black Rustoleum paint. Does that sound like it'll do the job? Anything I
might do that would either look better or last longer?
