Maybe I shouldn't, but going straight in the frame. I'll run in and test before front sheet metal. Here's how the day went . CLEAN SHOP (some LOL), and then here we go with the engine and transmission:

Very nice looking Engine! That is exactly the way a "HOT" Engine should look, Deep Red with Chrome Valve Covers, just like an R3. :!:

I'm just jealous. One garage I have is 75 miles away from the house & right now is unusable due to all the parts (& stuff) for my 41 Ford pickup & Studebakers. I admire not only the garage but the clean workmanship. Work that nice & detailed leaves me without any hesitation to trust the engine will perform flawlessly!
