    Has anyone taken apart their alternator and restored it and painted it ? I am thinking about doing that while i have it out right now

    Replacing the radiator and other cooling parts right now. Just removed everything today:

    Radiator
    Fan Shroud
    Hoses
    Fan Pulley and Belt

    Also thinking about painting the fan shroud and everthing...

    I taped mine off and painted it. I wouldn't recommend tearing into an alt. just to paint it, unless you rebuild them for a living or want to take all the part to have it rebuilt after you paint it.

    Well, if you take it apart to paint it, might as well have it powder coated instead. Some of the smaller shops can give you a great deal on powder coating.
