    Thanks! sometimes I wonder if it was the right choice for a first car but then when I hear it go past 3000 or see peoples head turn to look at it, I know it was the best choice.

    Still got alot of things to post guys, that's not all that happened over the year, I just wanted to get rust recovery out of the way first.
    Honestly I'm just too lazy to organize all the pictures right now. Expect like a week before everything gets up to date.

    Okay so the whole rust/paint thing is done now. So back to september of last year, the first two weeks of owning the car were mainly spent on ordering and changing the following parts - KYB Gas Adjust Shocks, New(used) rear callipers, wiper blades, and battery. I don't have pictures of that stuff cause my dad did that while I was at school. The car also didn't like to shift so we had to remove this thing

    ^(not me)
    clean it up and put it back in..
    After that the car was driveable but the shifter was still really sloppy.

    While that part of the transmission was out, I decided it was time to redo these valve covers/things...


    So following this video,
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DrexFHQlQ0&feature=kp
    I got to work. On my side though, I had access to a solvent cleaner and a shitty sandblaster.

    Getting cleaner...


    Ready for paint, (It kinda looks like I used primer but I didn't, I went straight to paint)


    Starting to paint,



    Finished,


    Back on the engine,


    And an actually nice photo,


    Bought the paint from Canadian tire, I think it was duplicolour engine enamel but I'm not sure. It was 5-7 coats on each cover and heating them up for every coat. I used a file and sandpaper to get the paint off the letters which probably wasn't the greatest idea.
    I think a better idea that I've seen some people do on here recently is to just wipe off the letters/protrusion for every coat. It saves alot of time and work, and the letters wont look as scratched as mine, though I never used a high grit paper.
    Also I didn't know about the wrinkle coat paint back then, probably would've chosen that instead if I knew.
    The valve cover gaskets and gromets were also changed upon reinstall.

    In anycase, the fresh valve covers made the engine bay look completely different,
