79camaro2001 -thats the factory powersteering box. The car was a two owner car and all original when I got it. It was just filthy. Sparkytfl- I used simple green, engine bright and a power washer to get the crud out. The firewall I used a really cheap sandblaster that made more of a mess than anything so I switched to a sanding disk/wheel. As for the paint, I used some self etching primer from autozone/walmart that works amazing. It really helps to use self etching primer before paint. Then on top of it I sprayed it with some regular flat black indoor/outdoor spray paint. I also bought one of the cheapy spray can holders that you use as a spray gun which really helped out. I went through 3 cans of primer and 4 cans of flat black. Thanks for all the kind words and advice guys. The motor will be going in this weekend hopefully. The headers just got here yesterday and I pantied them with hi-temp paint last night. hopefully all goes well.
