Thanx fellas I really apreciate the comp. I have decided to paint the block gold.

Cesar,I got the Hilborn set up from Scale Dreams.It can be found in the Parts By Parts section.

Thanx for posting the engine pic 502. I was originally going to replicate the whole car including the engine cover. But I decided just to use the car as a guide instead.

Yes,it does fit under the hood. I had to modify the mounting points on the frame but, the hood closes completely.

This is a great build and I like the direction you are going with this. I think the engine would of looked awesome matching the body look. I know I am a little late saying this but I really love the inspiration pic you posted in your first post of this thread. Sweet ride.
