UPDATE:

everythings moving quick now, got the old engine stripped ,now ready to un bolt mountains and its out

new engine,is now all stripped down,so i can replace timing gear,gaskets etc , uneccesary stuff like the sfi box,power steering pump,and other things stripped off.

rubbed down my powercap and primered it,its getting painted gloss black,but the Irmscher badge is gonna be chrome look.

The rocker cover and cambelt cover is getting sprayed gloss black, i ve already sprayed my new Opel plug cover in chrome look paint






its soon gonna be back
