Looking forward to see more progress.
I would have left the car as is without blasting, but it looks like you're building a very nice car, so you had a very good base Wink
This 1950 engine is neat, normally they changed the engines for something stronger haha

If this is a reproduction OT pulley you might want to read through the following Samba post before you install it. Some people have had issues with them not sealing properly and causing an oil leak behind the pulley:
