Got the engine/ trans out of the explorer today. Tomorrow I'll tear it all down and prep the block for Scat 331 rotating assembly.

Chassis Saver, excellent product. Rather expensive. Sprayable or brush able. Read the tech. I prefer it over POR-15. Or any other rust inhibitors. I have used gloss, satin, machine silver (cadmium)
As you can see not a lot of overspray. Very thick, I reduce it 8:1, shooting with a 1.4 tip SATA. Even with experience I suggest painting a few test pieces.
Gloss; If you apply to much it will solvent pop. You can adjust the sheen with different spray technics.
Satin; with different spray technics you can adjust the sheen.
Cadmium; tricky to spray but matches oem 5.0-5.8 intakes.
