Maybe in a few years I'll look back at this and reflect.
Red but Is It Red
The engine was mocked up so it could be cleaned and painted, my engine builder liked the block painted first. I do plan on painting it as an assembly later.
To paint the engine it needed to be rolled onto the driveway so the garage door could be closed, it was the only place I could paint the engine and not worry about over spray on the CHP car.
I closed up the day with painting the exhaust manifolds with Eastwood exhaust paint.
