    Wow, that looks awesome!! Nice work.
    Don't forget to check the exhaust pattern on the heads if you find another 390.

    That looks great for sure . Would love to do that to mine though I hope I don’t have a reason to pull the engine anytime soon!

    Thanks, guys,and I agree with you kiwi,wish I didn’t have to do it either,but taking advantage of the motor being out,the exterior is decent,interior is really good ,might even be ever to show it off with the hood open!

    Nice work! My sticker like that is just above the fire wall on the passenger side, right above were the hoses go to my heater coil, and it looks to be original to me!

    Hey buddy I think that’s right,my guy said there was an origional sticker all beat up under it when he pulled off the newer one and there was red paint under,my chero was originally candy apple red,so that seems right

    Ha! My car actually has that sticker in both spots. One on the shock tower and another that is practically destroyed on the passenger side just above the firewall. I guess whoever did my car decided to slap the sticker on the shock tower instead of taking the time to scrape off the old sticker or even cover it up. I had to look close before I realized they are the exact same sticker because the original is worn so bad. Sorry for the bum info Saff
