    Agree, especially since we can't see any of the attachments on the last 7 making-up-for-lost-time posts

    No clue what happened there. They were working when I first posted. Let me try something else.

    Been stalled just a bit waiting on parts, but have accomplished a few things. Paint scheme has been chosen (I'll surprise you guys when it happens), stuff dropped off for sandblasting, and the engine has been (mostly) degreased. I also got a new GoPro so videos will be happening very soon. Should I leave the engine raw or throw some paint on it?

    Depends on the actual finish of the aluminum after you get all the gunk off... natural looks good unless it's badly corroded. Interesting mix of parts on that engine - open nuts on some of the cylinder studs (supposed to be all acorn nuts) and an early, thin valve cover on the exhaust side. Looks like there's a fair amount of corrosion in places, along with the broken head fins - what a shame. Are you familiar with the 450 engine, or is it the first one you've worked on?

    First one I've worked on. This is a first year CL engine and according to the parts fiche, not all of the studs get domed nuts. I have extras of all the covers that have already been blasted and are going to get powdercoated. Was kind of bummed about the broken fins too.
