I stripped the passenger side yesterday which was not a fun job but not overly difficult. I handled the driver side today. The driver side was a little worse as the oil extension and sending unit leaked when I purchased the car. While I cleaned all the oil up years ago, there was still some hiding under the engine mounts.
I stripped them both with a wire wheel and coated them with Eastood Rust Encapsulator. I've some of the original Krylon paint which I'll put on the area after waiting a while for the Rust Encapsulator to dry.
I also need to strip the motor mounts themselves. I'll save that project for another day. I'm stopping early today to enjoy my last day off for Thanksgiving.
