    Cody, does it matter what kind of paint you use on the block? I would hate to see all that hard work get damaged by the heat of the engine.
     
  12. If it's Urethane he's good to go. Have done lots and never a problem with heat. Old straight Enamel works good too but takes about a week to dry.

    Cody, I know it was a lot of work for the roof, but if you weren't happy with it, now was the time to redo. Your stainless is looking super, engine and parts look great....Jim

    Wow. I've been following this build for several months now and every time you post a new update I get even more impressed. This deserves to be a Rodders Journal cover car for sure.
