    Using PPG 2 pak lorby mainly because i'm over all the preparation that goes into acrylic painting.
    Can't beat the gloss that comes off the gun with 2 pak with very little buffing

    Thanks Adrenalin.............I had a set of Lenso 5 spokes in gunmetal grey picked out to go on the car but she liked these ones so what does one do lol
    Only way to do work on a car is to do it properly from day one and have a game plan.
    Tonight I match ported the intake and exhaust ports on the head, tomorrow night i'm match porting the intake manifold internals and cleaning up the throttle body inlet.
    Pics tomorrow night

    I like them and lets just wait until this is painted to see if they suit. I reckon we all might be surprised.

    You really arent mucking around with this build are you? Great thread so far and lookiing forward to following this one.

    I have a feeling those wheels are going to look awesome once it's all jet black, however with big 5 spoke chromies they do get overdone on commowhores, have you thought about getting the dish sprayed gold?

    More work done over the last couple of days, engine together, engine bay painted and body ready for paint.
    Thought i'd taken shots of the port matching done on the head but I must have deleted them, you might just be able to see some of it in the engine shots.

    Another update of work done over the last couple of weekends.
    Car is re-sprayed and re-built engine is back in.
    This weekend i've spent wiring the stereo and remote central locking in..........hopefully in the next week or two I can get to work and cut and polish the paintwork once i've got everything bolted back onto the car.
