Here's the color the shortblock is going to be.. Really beautiful color in real life! It's mixed together by some different colors I had left from other things I've paintet in the past and think it ended up very well.. :-)

I mixed the color today and hope to paint the block in this weekend :-)

The shortblock is now paintet, I did in a couple of hours and I am happy with the result.. I like the gray metallic color, it gives it a more modern look I think.

Here are some pictures of before, with primer and with paint and clear on :-)

I think you could have painted it purple and it would still look great! Smile I like the color.

Haha :-D Thanks Doc! I think this color will match perfect with the color I am planning to paint the car in.. It all has to match together :-D

Wow! I just built a 393C stroker and thought I went a little overboard, but you sir are a maniac! I love it!

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Haha, glad to hear, I'm not the only one who is crazy.. I just can't control it when I get started, I love it! Next step is to get the Milodon oil pan paintet, because the gold galvanized color it has, does not match any more.. Big Grin

By the way, it sounds like a cool engine project! Do you have some pictures of the engine? Smile

yep, there is a whole thread (which I need to update) http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-my-en...w-pictures

Valve covers and PCV system have changed a bit, doing some additional wiring clean up and I need to pull the oil pan and replace the rear main seal as it is leaking. I had hoped it would stop, but it appears it will only stop if I run out of oil Wink

Word to the wise-don't expect a 600 horsepower high revving small block to hook up with a manual transmission, 3.89 gears and street tires without heavy suspension modification-even then you'll probably be disappointed. Big Grin

That engine looks cool to! Beautiful work..

Aaah that's not good, I hope you get it fixed Smile

No I don't expect that much, I think 450-475 hp should be my plan at the flywheel.. We will see when it's done.. Have you dynoed your engine yet?

Is the 3.89 gear ratio a good choice with manual transmission? Smile
