428 CJ Detailing
THE FINAL CHAPTER
THE LAST TWO ISSUES, WE BROUGHT YOU PART 1 AND PART 2 OF MARCUS ANGHEL’S EXHAUSTIVE DEEP DIVE INTO HOW TO DETAIL A 428 COBRA JET ENGINE TO CONCOURS LEVEL. This month, we wrap up the most comprehensive story on how to correctly detail the 428 Cobra Jet. For a refresher on the previous articles, check them out here—Part 1: mustang-360.com/how-to/engine/1802- hard-core-resto-tech-detailing-a-428-cobra-jet-engine; Part 2: mustang-360.com/ how-to/engine/1803-428-cobra-jet-enginedetailing-part-2.
This story was originally done in the March 1994 issue of Mustang Monthly by Bob Perkins, and it was one of the most thorough detailing articles written on the subject. That article, like so many others of that time, was mostly with black-and-white photos; so here we update that with full-color photos, plus we add some more in-depth detailing items. Although not every single option and feature can be shown in this story, this guide should serve as a good basis for some of the common detailing tips and tricks.
