Thanks! Yeah I know. I may not make the deadline for paint or I'll have to by heat lamps or something. Ugh... more money! I ordered them from MAF back in early June and the turnaround was supposed to be six weeks. It finally dawned on me about a month ago that they hadn't arrived. I call MAF and he said "oh! That order never got sent to the manufacturer."you better hurry on that paint. Nights are getting chilly. Looks good. What is taking so loooong on the pistons. Are they out mining the metal still?
So NOW I am waiting the six weeks for delivery. He said he was going to try to rush them for me but I'd prefer they didn't and just get it right. So I guess I'll get my finished engine back around Christmas. It was supposed to be done in Aug, but MAF... What a pain!
On another note, and I know this sounds like a total newbie question, but do you know if the shackles in that pic are already reversed?
