    from a cosmetic standpoint, I powder coated the air box and (with coaching from HBChris) had all the grey parts tumbled and clear coated. The valve cover was painted with a wrinkle finish then the high points were polished. Vintage Sports refreshed the engine bay and HBChris helped me with placement of all under hood stickers

    Wing nuts on the Weber jet covers aren't lined up... that's a deduct. :)

    ...amazing...it makes my engine bay look downright amateurish...

    I really need to step up my game and repaint the engine bay

    Wow... Filter screws and clamps all 100%

    Very nice.

    It is a disease... I polished the oil cap one evening on the bench. Polish marks all in one direction? I installed it and they were 90 degrees to the line of the valve cover.... I re did it. :)

    They removed the hood by taking out the pin in the hood hinge! Clever. No alignment probs when re-installing anymore.

    what I have learned.... keep spare EVERYTHING, broken, tarnished, bent, ugly. You will eventually wish you had never chucked it! :D
