With the high cost of paint these days ( even if you do it all yourself ) you might as well get the end result you want. Yellows a good color, is it metallic? I have an incredibly hard time painting metallics.

No, it's not metallic I will paint the engine-bay and the inside myself but the outside will be done by a painter. It's not really expensive. For 1L + 0,5K hardner i have to pay about 90 euro's More then enough to do the enginebay and inside
Metallic-paint i normally only paint together on special thinner-base, That goes fine by me luckely Water-based isn't my favorit...

So the engine is in good nick but it did use a bit of oil. Offcourse this could be the head, the block or both. Because the car hasn't been used for many years when it was in france i made the choice to lift the head and see how it looked like from the inside. Well, i may have found a oil-use problem. Offcourse i made some pictures again.
Cil. head off:
So, one cilinder has a big oil-consumption problem. The others are OK, bit of oily but not too serious. Suppose when i give the head a small revision it will have much less oil consumption and might be running better then before.
Also made a nice found. This engine has the original Nissan watercooled turbo-upgrade. Incl. the new piping and the new thermostat housing. Was a very nice found!
