Haha. Sorry. Color sanding/buffing likely early next week followed by test mounting some fender flares to see how I like them. If they look good, then paint. Then get it back in the garage.

I've been smoothing the engine block this week in the garage. I'm terrible about taking before and after pictures, so I'll try to snap a couple pictures tonight of the work in progress. It's a tiny engine block but so heavy for what it is.

Should be getting the engine over to the machine shop to bore it out +.120" and assemble the short block. Then I need to get my new transmission parts so I can build my close ratio straight cut box. Pretty much decided on buying a complete port/polish/big valve head and selling what I have.

I'm gonna paint the flares body color, but deep down inside me I want to paint them to match the roof. Gaahh. Maybe I'll buy another set and just change them out when I'm feeling rebellious.

Looking awesome! I was trying to figure out why I am drawn to that color and then I realized it's the color of my car

BMW Sparkling Graphite Metallic? It's very similar to a lot of charcoal colors out there, but this color has so many different hues and tints that it's a slightly different color from each angle and each light. Plus the way the metal lays down on the curves gives it a very interesting look. I'm more than pleased with it.
