random underhood pick shows painted acc. better

worked on the 305 a little this weekend



wellmy order got stopped and fucked up by mis comunication on my part so shock extensions have to wait i had some life stuff come up but i did paint my roll pan today and added a flip braket for the plate off a gm with rear gas door "80'smonte carlo , camaro any gm with a hinged plate holder will work paid 3 bucks for it at the junk yard"
looks like a close or good paint match

i cleaned it up and added some color using this article as a guide or idea

http://www.sporttruck.com/techarticles/0808st_1962_gmc_pickup_engine_cleaning/index.html

it's done but was not worth it in my opinion cause you have to remove the ac bracket and the alternator the fan and shroud to get the front of the block painted an i also painted the valve covers for now and it was so cold out i snapped two of the bolts off
pics of motor



well as of april 17th-20th ill be picking it back up to drag back to sd and fix changes to happen soon in the mean time ive had away from the truck i've found a few that inspire me for what look id like to go for....
aftermath member GRANT knows


TRAVIS or SLAMMED97's
i mostly like the all white grille with ss bowtie

and DAMIENS or AZDRAGGINSOON

ive also decided since im replacing heads im going to paint the block black again and run these valve covers and air cleaner


then thats it under the hood except for some electric fans in the future
i just got the hookup on 2 gauge cluster overlays clear parklights for a w/t and 6 stake pocket fillers on the cheap from another forum so add that to the list of to do's

and that brings us up to date for the next couple weeks
