block and crank will be back by friday so a coat of paint and bead blast all the aluminum parts and get em powdercoated or paint em.several key pieces will be getting chromed aswell.the manifold top and tb mount,fuel rails, fusebox and master cylinder covers to name a few.i also have a set of aluminum valvecovers off an earlier 4.0 that came with them that need some trimming of mounting spots for other things i don't have on this engine.after trimming i will sand and polish them on my buffing machine and send em for chrome.

first coat of paint is on and looking good.doing the motor in bright red tremclad put on with a brush not sprayed.much better control as to where it goes and where it doesn't.oilpan and other aluminum brackets have been bead blasted and now i am debating on if i should clearcoat or not.probably will.

got the crank in today,still waiting for some gaskets and new rod bearings.was going to reuse the rod bearings because they were in perfect shape but decided against it cause i am using different rods.had i been reusing the stock rods i would have reused the bearings they were in such good shape.gaskets are real expensive on this thing.rings are fitted on the pistons already just waiting for bearings.second coat of paint went on the block also.
