you think that paint would shine good with some buffing?

 

Doesnt look like to much rust either, good find

 

The dark blue is flaking off to reveal the factory light blue, will prob clean up some but will need paint eventually.

 

pretty solid, all I can find is 2 small holes on the driver floor board. I've pounded all over and feels solid.

4 wheel disks are purely for me, I despise drums. (and i picked up a pair of fullyloaded reman rear calipers for $60)

 

the cam is definately more than I had planned, I stumbled on it and had to buy it but I havent decided if I'm going to use it yet - would need to find a sss head and really go aggressive to truly get the benefit I believe. I havent' crunched the #'s yet

PS - I think the 'no car guts' in the minivan thing is a universal code of 'wifedom'.

 

 

LOL.....not in my world! Paula drove me to Eugene to pick up a roadster engine....we hauled it home in her van. I've brought two roadster engines hom in the van. Once you pull the seats, they leave awesome anchor points for the tiedowns :)

Got my block back from the machine shop! Eager to start building, but I didn't bring tools home this weekend, that's what sucks about being a mechanic by trade - whenever you need a tool its sitting in your box far far away. So I painted the block.

Engine together for the most part. Need to find an oil pan gasket (every place I go wants me to buy an entire gasket kit). Need to figure out what I'm doing for a carb. Need to find where my fuel pump spacer walked off to .
