    You know how it goes. A 6-week project to replace a weak motor with one not so weak. Well I have the engine out so I need to clean up the engine and paint it. Since I have the engine out I need to paint the engine bay. Since I am doing that maybe replace the fenders, how about the quarter panels, etc. etc. etc. 11 months later here is what I have. Before and after below.

    Looks amazing! Love the bright green. Can't wait to get mine back on the road.

    Trying to get a seized up fairey od off the TC is turning into quite a job.

    Makes me wonder if I should even put the new one od I have in the rig.
