    Thanks guys. I'll throw the old Offy in the bead blast cabinet and make it more presentable, even if it is just for looking at.

    I remember the car. The distinctive dash, soft yellow interior contrasted against the black, nice round ass...
    Glad you got it. :)
    Nice to see you improving it.
    Cool, man.

  11. That Offy would look good on my 265!

    Awesome job on that intake. Fuel lines and blocks look particularly good, an area not so well done many times!

    Thanks. I am not a fan of rubber fuel lines except where absolutely necessary.

    I Don't know anything about 265's but remember reading something about the camshaft and it needing something to lubricate the distributor that is different from other small blocks.

    Yes, you are correct. I had Comp Cams cut the notch in it when they ground the cam.

    Nice job! I feel your pain with the fish/eye problem. It’s frustrating. Armor-All is terrible for that as well. I had a ‘27 roadster with MG knock-off wires that I had Armor-All’d the tires on, had a TERRIBLE time with fish-eye on the wheels, even after stripping and blasting them.

    That's true, but it causes fish-eye, it floats EVERYWHERE in the shop, and it doesn't wash off (out) of paint with Prep-Sol.

    That's the goal. I never thought we would get so much enjoyment out of one cheap car. That's the way it usually goes.

    I had a T bucket along the same vein back in the early 2000's, I think I had about $3,500 in it. We drove the piss out of that car.
