I finished my th400 build,now it's time to sand the case and paint.
Whats my best option to use to sand the case,since its aluminum?Just some casting flash,and alot of what seems to be "spatter" on it,which is sharp.
Something I could pick up locally,at like **** depot,lol.
Flappers,or just stick with grinder wheel.
I know they like to load up fast with aluminum.

WTF didn't you prep and paint before final assembly???
No man.
I powerwashed it initially,but Ive been monkeyfucking it all over the workbench whilst rebuilding it.I never made the holder for the engine stand for it.
So here I am.

^^^ THAT!

I took my trans to my friend who rebuilds them, he tore it completely apart I took the case and cleaned it up and its in powdercoating now. When I get the trans back its gonna be rebuilt and will shine like a diamond in a goats ass!

If you are going to use aluminum oxide abrasives to level the surface, run them on a bar of ivory soap first to prevent the pores of the paper from loading up too fast with aluminum.
don't spin the discs to fast, it creates heat and will melt aluminum into the pad.
slow and steady wins this race.

DAMN thats nice!! How does that hold up?
Not as good as chrome but at the price you could have it redone many times over.
It does look kinda milky at times but as its under the floor who cares. Best bit was that we did the black fade on the front end to give a gradual change from the block to the trans. Not something thats easy with chrome,

Weight.. Who cares when its in a T Bucket... with this n front
