While that was drying, took out the K frame and some calipers and spindles (I think, not sure since I'm not the mechanic!). Cleaned them up real good and went on a hunt for paint spray cans in Y8 gold. Had a recommendation from garyfish340 of a place in PA but they didn't stock the color. The local shop is a House of Kolor and they were able to mix it for us based on the original factory PPG code.
Today the engine compartment got sprayed and it looks great! The color matches perfectly; was very worried about that. We left the back firewall in the original paint. The K frame and spindles were also painted black.
No work planned for the next several days as Hubby has ASE recertification exams but he ordered almost $1000 in parts for the front end, brake lines, trans lines, and more!! Thank goodness we don't have to pay for labor. :-)
