    Few people realize the amount of work that goes into prepping a car to get it to turn out like that. Very nice job! Can't wait to see it finished.

    Thanks! You said it right. I'll pass it on to my brother he did 99% of body/prep work I just gave instructions and encouragement then sprayed it single stage satin black for him. It's almost all together and will be legal and out this week.

    No he did not, it's in multiple pieces and waiting on heads to get back. New Teksid short block is ready and new bottom end just back from balancing. Still got a ways to go however.

    Yep JP, it's .020 over JE pistons that were thermal barrier coated on top and anti scuff coated on sides, SPE diesel did the coating. They are on K1 rods and the stock Kellogg crankshaft, all balanced through Dan Johnson's race cars. MMR gerotor oil pump gears, oil pan and pickup.
    Next pics will be starting the heads, timing setup going on.
