Still can't get pics up :pullinghair:    Watching you guys go at it...I had to take the engine well down to the metal.Just couldn't see coming this far and not doing it right.Besides with 7-8 layers...that's too much. I found a whole big box full of sand paper at the dump!!!  FREE SANDPAPER!!!  Tons of it! Makita hook and loop!!  PERFECT! So everythings all nice and metal now :icon16: Just finished up the RMS order!! The 340 had a cam bearing starting to go.So,Off to the hot tank and new cam bearings. I'm on a mission here. :working:   You guys help soooo much!!!   Thanks. Robert.

Am I dreaming?     My job is going crazy! People arn't buying homes,they are all calling me to fix up the one they got! :dunno:  Mayby somebody out there would trade a new kitchen for a paint job on the 'cuda.    :icon16:

So is this the right color for a '73 340 ?   :clueless:    It seems dark.   :clueless:  I sprayed a test...It's just like the cap.  I've done some searching with no definate answers. The info. I find says Turquoise ?  For Big blocks? ???


Hmmmmm....   Mayby I'm wrong.  It sure is close.   This pic might help show the color.
