Thanks for the boost, this will be a big hurdle that allows lots of reassembly to occur.

Thanks buddy!

Progress report: I took a break from sanding to do some, um, sanding. What kind of psychopath wet sands and polishes his valve covers? This kind... Perfectionism is a disease. I’m leaving these at 90%, good enough

Hahaha I thought I was the only guy who does this kind of thing! You've got an eye for detail! This thread has been extremely motivational for me to get my truck back on the road. Outstanding work.

Thanks a lot. You’ve got some heavy metal work going, keep up the good work.

The eye for detail is a blessing and a curse. Nothing is ever good enough...

There will still be logos remaining on the Holley fuel rails and the Wilwood master cylinder cover; will see if they bother me bad enough to do something about it.
your manifold looks great, nice job on that. I have done this twice, but ended up sending my manifold to Lamar Walden's shop (the 409 guy) just north of atlanta for a tumble in his manifold smoothing thingy machine. Was described a as a big dryer with walnut shells in it - not sure how accurate that is, but the marks all but disappeared (removed an Edelbrock casting) - I was leaving them bare - and it also transformed the dirt-trapping aftermarket casting into smooth gm-like casting finish. I do believe yours will be practically invisible after paint.
