You can use aluminum foil to protect items not being removed. It can be crimped around items without using tape- easy on - easy off.

Was doing a search on Engine Compartment paint for the '66. Quick question on the fan shroud, does it paint the same semi-flat black?

Any other feedback and suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you!!!
