Well it was a slow day today waiting for the intake paint to cure, but did make some slight changes to the way I block the exhaust port through the center of the intake, and went ahead and set the intake up on the engine. I will say the plates I installed back in 2012 have held up perfect. Also the Bill Hirsh Cadillac Blue was basically unphased by time or miles I have put on the car since the rebuild ... but still wanted to freshen up the top side with some cleaning and new paint. I will probably go ahead and torque down the intake tomorrow and install the carb and maybe give it another day or two for paint to cure before I try to fire it back up. I know I cured a lot of painted items in the kitchen oven during the first rebuild but can't remember if I roasted the intake in Cheryls stove! Regardless, I will let the engine heat finish curing it when I hopefully fire it back up.
So here is what we are looking at today... that Cadmium Bling sure looks good, huh?
