Thanks for sharing the photos and details of the build. I also used SEM products on my dash etc but it was only to freshen up my already black interior. Yours is looking real nice!

So here in North Florida we are having some bi-polar weather patterns, today was a cool and nice 50 ish degrees so I let the kids run around in the yard and garage while I started finishing up the dash pad. Got the chrome painted on and wood grain glued back down as well as assembled most of the vents and misc items. I also sprayed and painted the vents and re did the chrome on them. I purposely didnít do the inside chrome lines of the vents as I wanted to see how it would look.

Tomorrow I will mask off the inside and spray the metal dash.

What I was able to do is check on the kick panels I painted with the SEM ....looks pretty good If I say so. ** The glare from the overhead shop light makes it look like a streak but its not. **

I will try and do some motor build work tomorrow evening..fingers crossed LOL






Brian
Specifically what SEM product and color did you use on your kick panels if I may ask. Thanks for your time.

So I just took a break from prepping the dash to get sprayed. I have a lot more masking to do but here is how I am going to tackle getting the paint into the very shallow nook of the glass and dash where they meet. These are peel and stick pieces of plastic that you use for drywall to color test paint. This is immediately where my mind went in regards to how can I get something all the way down there and have a “static pull” towards the glass and stick. I think this is going to work very well.

I'm curious to see how the grill work turns out after paint. IMO there's going to be tan shadows on the back side where you can't spray it.

I was referring to the post earlier about the filter mount bolts. Thought I had quoted the post, but I guess I didn't.

Well I have some incremental progress to share. While I wait on my big shipments from OPGI and Summit (Also including my Vintage Air setup), I dropped off my TH400 and driveshaft to get re built.
The TH400 I'll have back in a few days, it's getting a mild shift kit, a 4L80 drum, and then the basics for a rebuild. The driveshaft was dropped off at 9:00 am and i just picked it back up - Man they were fast and really great quality.
Florida Powertrain & Hydraulics in Jacksonville did the work. They re-tubed, balanced, painted, new parts, etc - 300.00 bucks out the door. Great customer service and quality craftsmanship.

In your engine assy threads, I did not see any assembly lube used. Also did you make sure the bearings where clean when installed. Did you use cam bearings with groves on the back side ?
I'm not sure I would have used a HV pump on a stock pan, but for a street car should be alright. Just thinking out loud, I would have installed one piston and then install cam. With only one piston in you cam dial in the cam a lot easier. Like I say just thinking out loud.

Gene - yes assembly lube was used and bearings were cleaned as well. I’m ordering my cam today from Cutlassefi (Mark)
so I will be dialing it in next weekend.
