Thanks for the heads up, I will definitely do that. I need to pull it back off and paint it, so while its off I will had a screen to protect it. Thanks for the compliment.

Here are some pictures of the valve cover with the coils bolted up. And of the fresh paint. Take a guess at the pieces of sheet metal that are cut out to guess what I am making...








My goodness I take a lot of pictures lol

You don't take enough pictures. That mount and paint is fantastic.

Okay, here is the pieces of metal tacked up:


Half way welded





I don't know if it will clear the hood, but it looks cool lol. The one downside of not having an engine in the car. If it is too tall, I can get a shorter filter. Please excuse the mismatched -10 lines, they are turbo drains I had. Stuff from Fragola has been ordered, using all 90* fittings.

**edit** for those curious, it bolts up to the stock coil mounts, holds a quart, has a drain, and the CAS is still easily accessible and has full range of movement for setting timing.

I'm impressed with your skills. I'll be even more impressed if that catch can fits where it's mounted.

I'm not even sure if the coils will clear the hood.

Also those two flaps look rather small on the inside of the filter barb. Is that the only vta? Wouldn't that negate any benefits of running the two larger breather lines?

Yeah that's the only vta, it's a Moroso 1 3/8 baffled breather tube, so it is what it's designed for. But if it restricts it too much I will hog it out with my hole saw lol. I bolted the k frame back in the car and am going to set the block in there tomorrow to check clearances of the catch can and coils. If it doesn't clear I'm not going to weld it the rest of the way. Unless someone with a locust or something wants it. Tomorrow will tell all!

And it's my birthday and I don't fell like messing with it right meow.

Okay you naysayers. Here are some pictures of the stuff. The coils are perfect. The catch can, wellll I will have to do something different with the breather filter. But other than that it fits pretty nice, I will have to kinda tweak the brake booster line a little for the right side AN fitting. But nothing that can't be fixed.

Moar pics:









So, I am pretty please, I will do some messing around with the catch can to make it work, I personally think it looks badass.

A small update, I have been working on the front bumper trying to get it to look decent. I had a cherry front bumper that didn't even have the usual license plate bolt dents. When I thought of parting out the car, that was the first piece to go. I got this for free after the lady had rear ended a parked truck when she was drunk. It will never be perfect but it looks pretty good. Its primered now, almost ready for paint.

It was really mangled, that's just the worst of it.


Here it is before primer.

Got some goodies and finally got the car back inside. Did some cleaning with a rug doctor.

With no suspension I had to get the fork extensions and pick in up.

Thanks guys, another small update. The motor has been dropped off for bore, hone, and to be decked. And got some suspension stuff painted. I love having a glass bead machine.

Okay, the front end is all put back together minus the spindles. I ordered some more parts: new rotors, caliper rebuild kits, pilot bearing, and axle seals.

I still need to order:
V8 Roadsters upper balljoints
injectors
fuel pump
passenger seat
valves, springs, cams, and cam gears (other than the valves all of this is optional, so I havent decided if I want to do them or not, I want my car driving)

The list is definitely getting shorter, but it is still long.

This came in, I will be replacing the floaters, diaphragm, and friction discs.


Here are some pictures of the suspension and crap...sorry, iPhone pictures.

You are going to have a super clean car when you are done. You have inspired me to do some paint work on my car.
