A professional photographer came over yesterday to get some shots of my engine before it goes in the car.
Here's a teaser shot he sent me before he had to leave town for an assignment.

Thanks Adam! The older I get the more limitations I'm discovering...

I appreciate that M Penta, Thank you!

Nice photo Jack, would make for a great poster!

Progress is slowing up a bit as its now running into real money to keep it going versus years past when forward progress just hinged on my "free" labor. :( Nothing to do but chip away at it a dime at a time now.
Last months budget was spent getting the engine milled to accept that 4-cam housing. Below are a few shots of it with more photos and details here: http://www.abcgt.com/forum/6-Hot-Rod--M ... 6&start=96
Thanks for stopping by!
Justin

File comment: Install mock up to see if the lid was going to clear. Looks like it will so far but a lot of variables yet.

Steve, All trim related restoration should be sent to Victor Miles. Thats who I use.



No where near the progress on my car that I was hoping for after paint. I'm at the stage now where its at least a thousand dollar bill to move forward in any given direction on it so I've got to just go a dime at a time. I have however been developing the lower closing tins for my 4-cam housing conversion. The progress on that has been very slow as well since most of my time has been spent finishing out the rebody on my coupster project. Since that is getting very close to completion I've carved out a bit more time on the lower tins. Here are a few more recent progress shots.

Thanks for looking!
Justin
