Chrome, I has it.

That’s why! After a few hours of cleaning, degreasing, scraping, and vacuuming, I was able to put the motor back together. All of the brackets that could be removed were and cleaned and painted separately (like the coil brackets), the engine bay and other components were masked off, and the engine painted (the passenger side anyways). I then installed the new chrome valve cover with sticker and new gasket, new air cleaner with sticker (note that the tall stud clears the hood and is there for the 4” K&N on it’s way), and generally re-routed wires, ignition cables (that still need nice separators), and hoses. NOW it’s starting to look like an engine!
