Looks Good

Lots of work I can understand. Question? is there a chop going on with the top? The weld at the back beltline makes me wonder:huh:
Good work

Sorry guys for the lack of posting pictures for the last months, so here are some new pictures of the progress I made.

Ready for the sandblaster !



Sealing all the seams before the bottom could be painted, what a job:biggrin:

Great looking engine.
You may want to think about a remote location for your oil filter. Otherwise you will have to remove the driver side header every time you change oil. I thought the filter would slide out sideways between the 2nd and 3rd headers tubes on my 427 but with the mushroom oil pan, I was shy about .5 inch worth of clearance.
This is the unhappy voice of experience talking.

I'm glad you've told me, is far from ideal to remove the Headers for a oil change! Do you have a picture how it's mounted on your car ?

Thanks !
