Ok now I have paint on this here engine. I went with chevrolet engine orange for the block to make it look more like the original. I painted the intake pleunum with testors aluminum plate metalizer. The exhaust manifolds, coil covers ,the alternator and power steering pump brackets with stainless steel metalizer. Pullies are just everday flat black. I added spark plug wires and boots. I still have to add the fan belt and some wiring to complete..

Very nice work on that engine.

 

What are you going to use for the drive belt(s)?

I also work on the the inner hood/engine bay area. I cut out strut area and replaced it with sheet plastic bondoed and sanded. I also added some material to the bottom I am trying to make this area free of any clutter since this is a concept.

Last but not least I had to lay the decals on this to see what it looked like. I dont know if I will use these black decals or go with the white depends on what color I use onthis build. I may even paint the stripes!!!!

What ever you do, John, you gotta have those stripes. They really complete the Retro Chevelle look for this car. It's gonna be a knock out with the stripes.

 

P.S. It's a knock out already :)

I've gotta agree with Alyn, it's a Chevelle, it's gotta have those stripes!

May I suggest a color I think this would look good in a color that grabs your eye and makes you have to look or even do a double take.A color like atomic orange this is a GM color and was used on the 2008 2010 corvette

Great Build! Would really like to see your Dremel Lathe. The would really open up a whole new world of custom modeling for me.
