Some more work on the engine. I added a fuel rail and electronic injectors to make the engine more streetable. I also made the curved stacks that lead to a finned aircleaner, I still need to make an element for it. I also think I've got things close enough to take a stab at running the header through the fender.

The intake/aircleaner.

The fender cutout.

Some engine bay shots. I think the engine fits well and is definitely different than your average V8.

Other than plug wires I think there is enough detail in the engine now. What do you think?

The engine and transmission are painted and assembled. Other than a little touch up, throttle and clutch linkage they are done. I think it's a pretty cool looking engine.

The block is an aluminum silver, then I added some satin black to the same silver for the transmission color and all of the bolts on the block. I gave the tranny a black wash, but left the engine bare, the sheen from the silver gives all the detail needed. I had to fight the urge to do all the accessories in red for contrast, instead I did them all in Alclad. the only color is the red of the magneto and the turquoise of the wires.

If you notice, I did find a way to mount an alternator. It looks like the drive for the mag comes around from the side of the block, I added a housing that would hold two gears, one from the mag and one on the alternator. It might not be realistic , but it makes sense to me that it would work.

Is that header painted? If so, what did you use? That looks better than kit chrome... heck, it looks real to me. There is alot of cool things going with this build. Ive got it favorited as I will be using your suspension work as inspiration in future builds. Nice work, bro!

It's Alclad over a gloss black enamel.
