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

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
