    Since the engine and most all components were already taken out of the engine bay, we simply used some cleaning agents and the hit it with a few coats of paint that I picked out. Be sure to do a quality job and spend time letting things dry, taping things off and making sure you get a nice consistent coverage. The paint was relatively cheap and I had a friend that had a small heated garage and paint equipment.
