    Hey guys, big updates as promised. Possibly a few more after today. I managed to get the motor stripped of sensors and accesorys yesterday. I also pressure washed, degreased, prepped, and painted the engine bay. I used underhood satin black which should help tie in my theme nicely. I ordered a Zinc gold coating for the brake booster for a little bit more old school flair so stay tuned for that update as well. Things are moving along quite nicely. Today ill be cleaning and media blasting stuff to take to the powder coater. Ill be polishing the Cantons as well.

    In regards to the Cantons can anyone tell me what gaskets i should use to keep them from leaking? Ive heard of this being a bit of a problem on these covers.

    Unfortunatly i have to take a hiatus next weekend so progress will be limited for a bit but with the rate things are moving im confident it wont be much longer till shes on her way to the dyno.

    Im debating right now rather to mount the 24x coil packs on the valve cover or hide them neatly under the cowl, what do you guys think? thoughts suggestions?

    Heres the pics, enjoy!



    These things look sick, i love em



    Hole Shot!



    She was pretty filthy



    My helper, he didnt leave my side all day long



    A testament to the performance and reliablity of the Chevy Smallblock... 160k hard hard earned miles and she still ran like a champ... my buddys going to be rebuilding her and putting it in his 91 silverado, stay tuned for that build thread as well.





    Im stoked with the way it turned out!

    Just a brief no picture update guys: I'm in the tedious clean polish paint powdercoat stage so even though ive been working my ass off I dont have a ton to show for it right now. Parts are still shuffling in Daily as well and I almost have everything I need to start putting her back together. Im working on some interior pieces Today though so I may have a little update tonight. Ill keep you guys in the loop.

    On a side note if anyone happens to have a diagram or pic of how they ran there emissions delete vacuum lines on an LT1 (getting rid of it all, air, egr, evap) could you let me know... I have a basic idea but I just want to make sure I get my routing right.

    Nice, should look good.. I went with satin because it should tie in my classic theme nice. Deffinatly recommend getting as much stuff off as you can... Makes it easier
