I would use sos pad and a little water then spray with crc or wd40 all over. Then clean surface to be painted with brakleen and air dry and paint right away. you must keep bare surfaces covered some oil or penitrent or rust is inevitable.Randy.I just picked up my block from the machine shop and I've found some surface rust on the fresh bore job. 1. Is this a big deal? 2. What's the proper way to clean it off?
I also need to paint the block. Any suggestions on the proper procedure?
