got my motor out and and currently planning on totally repainting everything in the engine compartment, I was wondering exactly what sanding/priming/etc I should do to get a decent looking durable finish. Its gonna be black rattlecan, but I want to make sure I use the right paint/primer and the right process to make it last and look nice. help is highly appretiated!!

Before you start take a look at this thread:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=143.0
Especially heed JohnZ's comment in the second post:
"See the "First-Generation Camaro Assembly Process" paper in the "CRG Reports" block at the top of the page for more Paint Shop process detail."
If you are going to do rattlecan, this could save you later headaches...
