No progress on my car lately, but this might keep you entertained. It was a charity event at Homestead-Miami Raceway. Pay for a car wash and get a trip around the track. I paid for 2 extra laps in my 04 Navigator. http://red.wow64.net/ride-N-wash/ride-N-wash_player.html

Getting very close to firing the new 355 for my Austin gasser! Just a few hours of final fitting pieces and she'll be ready for a cam break in!

Thanks Ryan. This is what I started with. I thought it would be an easy polish, as it was smoother than the newer cast intakes. But it turned out that the factory back in the 60's did a lot of grinding prior to blasting the surface. When I thought it was ready for polishing, I got it partially polished and all sorts of grinding swirls, and ripples showed up! The more I polished to try and remove them, the worse they looked. I finally had to stop and do a lot of hand block sanding to remove the ugly surface, and get the large flat areas smooth enough to polish again.

That looks really sharp Vall. I would tease you about having OCD when it comes to making stuff look right, but apparently I can't talk lol. I was trying to freshen up the interior on my 85' C10 and got carried away. I am still not done! Ripping out the entire wiring harness now, then pulling the dash and firewall pad before fixing interior flaws. I will reliant the cab and jamb it before putting in new interior components.
