    It seems like a lot of work to retain the 289. Are there plans for a Mod-Motor in the future?

    I sprayed SPI epoxy before starting the bodywork the next day

    Bodywork is finished was going to epoxy prime again but the temperature dropped below 60 and it is to cold to spray epoxy.

    We took the engine apart today and I can't believe how clean it is.

    I also epoxy primed the fender aprons and block sanded them. I found a few low spots so I added a little more filler than block it out.

    Hey Rusty,

    Whose kit are you installing? I would be interested in knowing how well the E-brake holds that rig when finished. Since our OEM systems are so pathetic.
    Nice work!
