Bud's motor update

Here are some pictures I took last week of Bud's motor before and during the paint up. I used purple cleaner to degrease the motor first. Then Aircraft Stripper to remove all the old paint. Then washed the motor again with purple cleaner. Then took a wire wheel and sanders to clean the corrosion from the aluminum and get the loose stuff off. Then washed with soap and water and blown dry with air. I did not take a picture of the shiny clean motor before I primed it.
Hey Mike, any updates on the motor? Can't wait to see it finished. I'm sure its going to look awesome.
