 Sanded it and stripped the rust off with CLr. Taped off the decal and painted it. But it doesn't look that nice anymore. But I do have one of those cool dual snorkel air cleaners on it now. At some point I'll redo the whole deal.

How did you paint it and save the rim section with the gold lettering ? My LO-5 doesn't have any fancy lettering on my air cleaner lid, what you get when its a Chevy. Last time I changed the air filter some critter ( likely a chipmunk ) packed the air horn through the plastic breather tube solid with my white ash " helicopter " seeds, my air breather was starved for air. I never made my screen for the intake tube to prevent that in the future.

I saw one 94 FWB asking 7 grand, no mufflers I mean strait pipes, no rear brakes as in caped off, front shocks shot and on & on & on, and that was one of the good ones!
Was there a lot of melted rubber in the rear wheel wells?

 If you're working with a bit of a budget.

 Drop them off right here. Oh, and by the way, I'll keep the hauler too.

 Mine is set up like that with the aluminum brackets, AC compressor on the right side. 1987-89 had the big stamped steel horse shoe bracket.

Since your LO-5 is a 1990 like mine I assume the AC compressor is on the PS, this was the first time I saw one on the DS on any V-8 engine in that video. Same old, you struggle the first time and now I could do the job in four hours but I fuss with it, painted the WP, clean the shroud and use the plastic/vinyl coating product. 303 Aerospace Protectant is the best, I use that on the Rad hoses too. My T stat aluminum housing after seven years I was surprised to see the corrosion and it had a slight leak too, cleaned that up and repainted it.

Low annual mileage on my ride but I've read some guys replace their Rad houses after four years or so, they get swollen, etc. and the T stats get crummy after awhile and they are cheap. Don't wait until something fails and you break down but that can happen regardless, parts just fail.

That's embarrassing isn't it ?  I've come close a few times but haven't done that yet.
