    -Get interior ready for paint, then paint
    -Install front and rear suspension and make the car back into a roller
    -Replace Rad support (I REALLY REALLY NEED A UPPER RAD SUPPORT!!!)

    And the big list of things that have to be done before I can drive the car this spring
    -Fill holes in firewall
    -Find a hood.
    -Paint engine bay
    -Reassemble redtop with 7afe headgasket, new bearings.

    Ported my head today, Its really hard to get good pics.. I still need to cross buff the insides to get the proper finish but I mildy hogged them out where the valve seats are cut because from the factory it's horribly finished... and lapped the valves.. big big improvement It's a Redtop BTW.

    The front end is white, as is the interior.. and i'll have pics tonight.

    ah we got the idea. looks pretty darn good. what kind of valve springs are you going to be installing? are you going to get the head resurfaced?

    I'm on a budget right now.. the school crunch is on. So I will be using all oem parts unfortunately untill I secure some fundage. Bleutop cams, stock springs... I have a set of cam gears that I plan on using.. Yes I plan on getting the head resurfaced.

    I'm ready to start hanging body panels almost.. Just have to paint the doorjambs.

    Might as well finish up the engine pics

    Old Detonated crappy piston


    Redtop pistons, GZE block... All Reassembled cleaned and honed wif new piston.


    Rockerguard!!


    When they say pound back your wheel well, you do it.


    It's really really white...


    Really..


    Really..


    White.

    man, it looks great!
    i was just wondering, the bar on the cage that runs across the front looks entirely too low to me...
    doesn't it look like it may get in the way of your legs in a rollover?



    anyway, lets hope that nothing like that shall ever happen to you or this car.
