Shiny New Ford Straight Six

I picked up the refurbished Mustang motor from the machine shop on my lunch break yesterday. It was a little pricier than I anticipated, but it sure looks like they did a nice job. Look at how clean and pretty it is! Even the exhaust manifold looks good. The block (and the oil pan, which I still need to clean) is going to get a nice coat of gloss black, and lots of new shiny pieces put in. Those are all in the big white box.

Part of my day tomorrow will be spent out at the body shop going over what new parts need to be ordered for that aspect of the project. That could get pricey, too. The budget is starting to get strained a little bit, but I am pleased with progress so far.
