Some new pics. Exhaust finished and more.
Looking good the FE looks good dressed with the Eledbrock trim I would be inclined to paint the recesses of the fins the orange body color it would look good against the black firewall
5.0 Chero, I probably have to change the valve covers the problem is there is too little space to the brake booster. I will install the original ones.
Little space is all you need.
I have less than 1/4" from the booster to the the valve cover (short stock covers) and only 1/8" between the booster and clutch master cylinder (on my 59 Elky)
YOU GOT A WINNER THERE,
Mm-hmm, fun when you have a rocker problem or the engine has adjustable rockers. But you can keep those aluminum covers; if you have to remove the cover, you unbolt the driver's side engine mount and jack the engine up a couple inches. That's supposed to give the cover enough clearance to be removed. And your work is so gorgeous, but I'm wondering: is the transmission in there the one that'll be with the car? I was looking at the dirty case, which is not going to go with the beautiful work you've done.
Hydraulic power brakes. Electric if you don't run a power steering pump.
Booster size issue GONE!
wow, that looks great.
-dig the FE bro!
Looking awesome! Thanks for the update.
Thank you for your feedbacks and suggestions. Meanwhile I worked little further. I have installed original stell valve covers that I have painted in the car colour and I like it. I lay it once.
@ handy_andy_cv64 yes you`re right, the transmission is looking ugly. I will taking care of that. I already have to remove it for sealing because it is leaking oil.
Also new is that I swaped the cast steel headers for a new pair of custom headers from FPA.
Love the orange! cant wait to see it complete.
Headers and engine.
gotta love the tight clearance headers!
Sucess, car is finished.

Awesome job----car looks great
