I give zero crap. I think most aftermarket pans come fully painted in and out.

Ok I didn't know if that would be bad to have paint in the pan.

Yesterday, I didn't work at all on the jeep, but I killed a project that was stopping me from doing a lot of work on it.

This is a bird cage I've been building as a graduation present for my GF. It's 5' wide by 3' tall in the back by 2.5' deep. Made entirely from raw materials, besides hinges, latches and springs. All the wire was hand cut and bent. I even had to put the studs in the grape vine perches. Whew!

I celebrated with BBQ brats and a beer.

Very nice cage. Nice craftsmanship looks like something you could go buy at a store.
And I saw the beer and the pic is kinda fuzzy and I though it said fat free.

I was able to get my t18 all sealed up and torqued down along with the advance adapters Dana 20 adapter.

There is an input gear for the Dana 20 that bolts onto the back of the tranny, and that sucker has to be bolted down tight!!! Otherwise the torque of start and stop will wiggle the nut loose because the splines aren't super tight. Well that was really loose when I disassembled the drivetrain, and it was scarry! I could've lost that nut and gear into the tcase and KABOOM! Needless to say, I put my 660 ft lb impact gun on it and let it sing for a long time, now it'll be awesome!

I cleaned the t18 and painted it with duplicolor cast iron engine paint, just like I did to the tcase. Now I need to paint the external drivetrain bolts, bellhousing shields, clutch fork, and under oil pan cross member.

Ironically, she has little finches.

1 gouldian finch (colorful one)
2 star finches (red faces)
2 owl finches (look like owls kinda)

The owls are cool because they "meow" like a cat!

where did you get the primer you used on the engine? and are you painting your axles?

I haven't done the engine, just the pan and trans and tcase. But I used rustoleum primer because it neutralizes the small pockets of rust that are easy to overlook.

It basically the whole motor besides the valve covers, intake and exhaust manifolds, timing cover, flywheel, and oil pan.

Or basically the fully assembled block along with fully assemble heads.
