Got a bit done over the weekend. Finished wiring on IR alternator and got to work on the l20b block vent tube.

Thanks guys. Still need to sort out the wiring. I didn't anticipate for this many wires and it's getting pretty cramped in the back, but it shouldn't be an issue, just makes it more of a PITA getting it to look presentable.

I picked up some high temp filament today. Well.. ordered it at least. I'll probably print another one of these with the high temp stuff. It claims to be good up to 190f. I'll be happy if it's 160f.

Repop 69 side markers. Lenses are ugly.. but the light housings are perfect and work with oem lenses. Its the only reason I got them and they are dirt cheap.

I got some two door, door seals, and a NOS fuel pump.

I got the exhaust manifold painted. I'm going to just use the on car curing procedure.. hope that works ok. Meh

I tried the on car curing. In a year there was no paint to be seen.

That's good feedback. I believe mine will probably do the same. I did take it down to bare metal by sand blasting it.. not sure if that will make any difference. Also... I tried finding high temp primer but the 3 stores I went to didn't have it.. so that could very well fuck me over too. If it does get shitty again.. I'll probably either take it somewhere to have it done professionally.. or just buy a quality SS header. I've heard bad things about headers though... so it could be a lose lose.

I think ceramic coating was about $125 to get it done.

Starter installed and wired

Dizzy in and wired. Cleaned up and ran fuel lines. Still not happy with the routing.. might look for hard lines.
