Nice, you can do mine next. What was the cause of second engine rebuild? Noel

That old piston looks nasty! I have a rod from a car that was customized by the previous owner's son. It looks like a ball peen hammer.

Did you ever stop to think that a ball peen hammer is actually a peen ball hammer?

Nice job.

Nice job. I would have used more mettalic silver, not the grey, but works out either way. Neat tires! I would need high back seat too! Where you get another steering wheel? I may need one in future. Decals look fine, hardly anyone is gonna know or notice.

First motor failed because the aftermarket rod was too tight on the crank and couldn't get lubed. Ran for about 10 minutes and blew up. I had the guy who did the machine work assemble it the second time and didn't have any more problems. If you're in SE Michigan and need any machining done, I can't recommend Baldwin Automotive Machining enough.

Steering wheel was from Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004HIE67O

Paint was just MF Gray and MF Red from Tractor Supply. Used a bunch of spray cans.
