    Sprayed the valley pan, got primer on one half of the top end. Got the passenger's side manifold painted in 2000 degree flat aluminum. Loving the time change because its light till 8 p.m. right now, but it's also 2 hours later than I thought it was when I got out of the garage.

    Been a little bit, been waiting on the proper valve cover gaskets to get shipped to me (there was a year change in '57 for the gaskets, and my valve covers are earlier, so I learned something new). Painted the top half of the engine (using Joe's aluminum foil mask technique). Mocked up the engine again to check my air cleaner clearance after changing up a few things. Metal finished out the rough as hell factory dents they had for radiator hose and engine removal hook clearance in the Toronado it's off of from Oldsmobile. Started actual assembly of the engine last night and figured out how I'm going to route the heater hoses to best keep them hidden. Should have the air cleaner painted up the next few days. Hopefully all back together mid next week.

    Thanks Frank. Man, mother GM sure wasn't gentle or precise putting those clearance dents in. I wacked the bajeebus out of them with the ball end of a ball peen about 30 times each to get them roughed out, then about two hours with the body hammers and dollies. Things were work hardened baaaaaad. Finished with a file and a whizz wheel. Once it's painted white and pinstriped up I hope it'll all tie in nicely :)

    Hammered to get the car done for our first cruise night of the year, had around 500 cars show up. Still have to clean up some wiring and things like hose clamps and some overspray, I just rushed to get it running and was still 2 hours late. Car ran well, no major issues, have to adjust the timing a little. Got the air cleaner back tonight from my buddy and set it on with my offset adapter to check fitment. Thanks again, Bill! It fits just right happily. Once my pinstriper gets back from AZ where he snowbirds at the end of the month I'll get it striped up in matching "Nachtblau"....going to paint the radiator black and make some cleaner mounting brackets next. It sticks out like a sore thumb right now.

    Lucas,
    Saw this bad boy at a car show today. Not crazy about it being on the ground like that but boy, it was straight as an arrow, which it had to be considering it was black. 20210502_102623.jpg 20210502_102610.jpg 20210502_102549.jpg
