    If you don't know, grinding sucks!

    But, I decided to polish all aluminum parts.

    I must have never seen a flathead crank before. That thing has really got some BIG counterweights.

    Beautiful build. I can't imagine doing all that polishing, but it sure looks great. The engine looks fantastic, congratulations on such a great job so far!

    Excellent work and craftsmanship! I did something very similar withmy rails on my 28 A. I lost some cab height but being 5'7" allows for that;)

    Nice sheetmetal work too.

    That POWERplant is intimidating to say the least. Sum'bitch is screamin' while sittin' still:D
