NEW INTERIORS LOL....

I started this motor sometimes back when... I picked up a low miles 454.. Found out it had a bad head,, Put two newly re-worded heads back on with some new lifters,,, I ran it,, But not enough to break in the new lifters,,, I'm getting the stuff I have left to buy for her,,, Then I will be able to take the first ride...


I only have about $1000. dollars left to buy,,,(parts) I'm hoping to have it done by 2016 world of wheels here in New Orleans... Me and the chairman is good friends and he keep's asking me WHEN WILL WE SHOW IT OFF !!!!!... I just say soon enough...

I now have the brackets welded on, I should have the air test done tonight..

Going to be even colder tomorrow...

I guess it's time to fire up the heater... I was hoping to have this tank in primer by the weekend.. We will see...

Just have to think it over a little more,,,

Do I want everything to look jet hot coated or chrome plated..

It will have A LOT of chrome and a very nice paint job... I'm hoping when I decide to sell it,, It will most likely end up in a museum some where's...We will see..
