How about some before/after pics?

1.) Here is the 454 as it looked when I pulled it out of the donor truck.
2.) Long block at the machine shop.
3.) Painted with Endura (2K) paint. My very own brand of "Chevy Orange" that I made by mixing "about" 60% yellow / 40% red. (Might be tough to duplicate.) I had them assemble the engine with the stock tin for painting purposes, and was going to replace them with those M/T valve covers ... but I've changed my mind.
4.) TH-400 also painted with (a seperate batch) of Endura.

Stay tuned for updates... I'm waiting for $500.00 worth of shiny parts that I ordered from motorchrome.com
