Building a small, high rpm engine

Re: 1978 Chevy Sport Re-creation

Looks great! Did they dip or blast for cleaning?

It is a chemical dip. I looked at dustless blasting but was worried about trapped wet material that would prevent the e-coat from adhering.

What are you going to do about those hard to find bumper impact guards?

Re: 1978 Chevy Sport Re-creation

Super nice build! I am tuned in for this one.
Eventually I would love to take mine down to the frame and take it apart like that. Having all these parts powder coated did u have any issues with the coating adding too much thickness in the mounting holes? I had a motorcycle frame powder coated once and some other parts I ended up having to drill out a bunch of the holes.

Soooooo, I needed not only the plastic pieces but the bumper as well........searched forever and one day I saw this for sale here on this forum. It was in Louisiana but a friend was stationed not far from there in the Coast Guard.....he went and grabbed it for me and shipped it.

I have considered keeping in in a safe they are so hard to find

No real problems on the mounting holes.....a couple were kinda snug but it was no biggie.
