    As you can this oil pan is pretty rusty and pitted. My question to you guys is do I continue cleaning the rust off or should I just break out the wallet and buy new 390 oil pan?

    I'll be using the Power Purple De-ruster on this oil pan. Here's what the oil pan looks like after washing it with grease lighitning.

    Now the next step is to apply a coat of Rustoleum Engine Primer.

    Here's on progress on repainting the 390 and 390 parts. All that is left is the block and 4bbl. intake.
