Engine and parts look excellent. Is your plan to bolt the parts together?

Is that some sort of CNC machine or are you doing all that by eye! Simply amazing how good those parts look.

no Drew it is all free hand, I WISH I had a CNC!! thank you!

Impressive!!! I agree with the above comments about selling sets of the valve covers. I would definately be interested in a few pairs if you ever decide to. With what you have posted so far it's easy to see the bar is about to be raised!!
