Rolled her into the shop to detail her. It’s kind of amazing. I had a lot of good guidance from the club and Mud when I blindly dove off into this project 4 years ago. Everything under the hood has a memory and a story.

One truly amazing thing is that other than using black wire to repair all of my burned up wiring, there is not much I would change on it.

Got the engine done. Belts snugged. Added a couple quarts of fluids.

Off to the body and the sweet smell of Fluid Film

Underside was it terrible

That's a cool cat lol. Any specific tools of the trade for engine detailing?

Clean as a green bean.

Then I ran back to the container and dig out the Real Steel bows I’ve had stashed for a couple of months. Those and some Mosley Motors/Holley boxes 😬 (not for Project Patina)

I started putting this jigsaw puzzle together. No instructions 🙄.

I can’t believe this pile was ever that color.

The top shipped today. I’ll be ready for it. More tomorrow
