I let machine shop guy to glass bead blast my block. Got very beautiful, and cost 10 Euros ($13) because it was already disassembled, cleaned/washed and masked.

Im in the process of painting my transmission as well. I've already painted my motor. I used a wire wheel on a air drill, red, blue and white scotchbrite pads(different colors are softer or harder) and lots of brake clean. Before i did any painting of color, i sprayed self-etching primer. That primer will actualy bond to the bare metal ot helps make ure finish color look better. As far as the paint i used it called "alumablast". When i sprayed it on my new oil pump to test the color, it matched perfectly u cany tell a difference in color!!!! Will post pics when my buddy comes over tonight.

I wouldnt paint my block if I were in your situation...when you read write-ups on people painting there intake tube and intake manifold its because it basically "seals" the cool air in. Painting your block would essentially seal the heat in would it not? Maybe im way off

yup ypur way off. a THIN layer of polimers and metal flakes wont do shit to the engine, plus last time I checked the radiator and coolant are what cools the engine :).
