Waiting for block and cam kit. Finally found someone with good A pillar covers. Got one of Doug's reproduction 4.25" gas caps, looks much better than the locking unit. Cleaning up engine bay and painting.

Hey Zeke, you get your heat riser figured out yet? Just seen this on ebay for a 151.

Thanks 75Monz, requested shipping quote.

While the engine block is at the machine shop, I'm busy refurbishing the bay.

What a difference, how long did it take to get all the wire, hoses and other parts wrapped before painting? Might be more to do but you're getting closer!

Thanks Dick; Took over 3 hours to tape it up and another hour to untape. Removing the undercoating took days. :cuss:

Thanks 283vega, not yet. I just started doing the 5 lug posi conversion when the engine had issues on this car. Red Monza got put back together and put outside for now. Hope to get back at it after I finish rebuilding the Iron Duke.
