Drove the car around the block this morning. Voltmeter was reading high, the battery light was dimly lit and the tach was acting really funny...very jumpy. Then I remembered re-painting the front half of my engine bay last week and decided I had to re-do a couple of my grounds. Grinded the contact points back down to bare metal with a dremel and everything is back to normal. Phew. Then, I started tearing stuff apart again. Upper and lower intake manifolds have been removed. Lower was shipped off today to Tom Moss for porting. The upper will remain stock but will be stripped down and re-painted/cleared. Valve covers will also be removed while everything is off and stripped/re-painted/cleared. I'm thinking of just using a basic light/medium grey on the valve covers, similar to OEM. While the lower intake is off I'll also work on painting the rest of the engine bay, but judging from the amount of wire looms and hoses running back there it won't be easy.
