After getting the Oil pan sorted out, the video is above.

I wanted to finish masking and painting the block. Justin Frische and I show 2 different methods for this. One with a hammer, and one with a razor blade. I’d say a combination of both methods may be the best approach. As for the color, that’s entirely up to you, although you may be influenced by other people in the room like I was. In my case, I was happy they did.

Thanks again to Justin Frische for his help in this video.
