Default smoke on first start up?

so i finally got it going and start to adjust the timing and i start to see smoke coming from the engine bay. Doesnt smell like burning oil nor do I see anything from the underside.. atm it is a open DP and i dont see that coughing out smoke and i look at the black paint and it seems to be all glossy and **** is that melting after just like 3 min of idle?

Its the machine oils and the oils from your hands burning off, it will subside.
