    Yea, yea, yea... the waiting has been happening on my end too. Still no word on the block, finally just cleaned the heads today too. However they are not clean enough for me so I'm going to pay to have them hot tanked. Then it'll be another 3 weeks before I see my heads again after I send them to CA. Once the heads are out I'm going to turn my attention back to the shell and start prepping it for paint. Hopefully this should start to happen by mid next week. I'll end up having July 2-7th off so if anything else a lot should get completed during that time. However in the back of my mind I want to take a car to CarCraft Summer Nats... so I may have to put a hold on the Contour build and put my Camaro back together for the show.

    Oh blah! Not with the kind of money I have wrapped up in this thing.

    Got word today that my block is finished!! The guys are shipping it back tomorrow I can't wait to see how the oil squirters look . I STILL haven't taken my heads up to the shop to have them hot tanked. I've been dragging my feet because of the whole Expedition purchase and trying to clean up the garage for my little project this coming weekend. Hopefully everything goes smooth and I can post some sweet azz pictures on Tues next week.

    Taking a trip to a little place called Express Composites tomorrow to pick up some needed goods Should have some pretty sweet pics by next Friday for you guys to drool over I should think...

    On another note after my heads ship on Monday I'm probably going to take a small break from the Contour to get my Camaro together so I have something for CarCraft Summer Nats.

    Well I guess my heads won't ship out until Wed now as I needed to get them blasted and jet washed. So a good friend at Cat recommened A&K Auto Machine for the work, which turned out to be just down the street from my house. Also as I was putting my Chev 358 back together in the garage Mr. UPS came...






    and hopefully with these my engine will run nice and cool.

    Me too!

    Haha. Yea this is why it has taken me so long to finish this thing as I can only mustard to throw $200-600 at it a month. Then pair that with the long turn around times for things like oil squirters and head porting and it makes things go even slower. I'll be working on stripping the rest of the car today though as to help pass the time. On another note my Camaro engine now has the valve lash all adjusted and completely assembled. Just need a transmission put on behind it and fuel and coolant lines hooked up to it and maybe the MSD/Accel distributor and coil hooked up too
