19 We continued to reinstall all the freshly painted parts till we got to the alternator. The day was almost done and we really didn’t have time to break down the alternator to paint the housing. We decided to take a trip to the local parts store and pick up a new one for just over 50 bucks. We got very lucky that this new unit already had a black pulley and fan so we didn’t even need to paint that. We also picked up a few new bolts to replace the dingy ones that can be seen like the ones on the alternator bracket.
