Thanks guys, I am very happy with it. Last night I bolted on all the accessories even though they aren't all painted yet. It looks good. Not much of the blue wil even be able to be seen, but I never really cared about that anyway. I finally feel like I have made progress on this project. Once I get the rest of hte brackets cleaned up, it will be time to install the cam and get everything all sealed up with gaskets and replace a lot of the bolts that were rusted/corroded. I am very excited.

Looking great Eric. You might want to avoid installing too many of the front accessory items. Clearing the radiator support going in might be tight. Ask David about installing the engine. I'd leave off the balancer and most of the front dress. Regards,
