Everything looks good. I think you put the scoops on the windows in the wrong way though

no there in correctly you need something to protrude to capture the air, but it could work the other way too, to a degree. they actually work very well I was surprised at the flow of air its hard to get it angled any where but your chest but it was well worth it IMHO

Yikes!

Do you think you may have starved the motor of oil? Also, I am suprised that you had an oil ring and a hose fail. Do you think you have some other issues you need to deal with? Heat? To high of oil preasure?

Curious as to their lighting vs. the stock lights. Any comparison shots?

sounds like a torqueing issue maybe overtightened and then fatigued after so many heat cycles.

Looks good. I almost like the fender, it's like a scar. Chicks dig scars.

Glad to see that you have made some good progress. You should think about camshafts. You should have most of the things to support it now right?.....Oil pump?

I can help you set it up if you go that route.
