Yeah I'm happy, it came out Lazer straight. I knew it should but I still worry a bit about it until I see it in gloss.

Funny, I saw three new or nearly new vehicles yesterday in that color. A Tacoma, a Challenger and a luxury import of some type. BMW or Audi l think.

I like Welds. They definitely have been putting out some cool wheels lately.

Is this a street strip deal? If so hopefully I'll see it at NED!

Yes, currently waiting for my block and rotating assembly to be balanced. It's a 461 with kauffman high ports. Definitely planning on a few trips to NED.

I took screen shots of what you guys did to get them working. Not sure what waterpump I have I haven't even gotten close to that point, I still need to blueprint the lower end and order all my bearings ect.
