Valve cover bolts

Prior posters are correct that the engine was painted after assembly.  Some water pump bolts were not on the engine when painted as they would be installed with the front accessories in final assembly.  My understanding to David's point of the engines being run is that it would be a cold test to check pressures and leaks.  Here is my engine painted.  MCA judging allows for some overspray on the bellhousing.  I choose the bare aluminum finish with no overspray.
