The Engine's Out

By GoldenGirl

The 318 came out today! The past few days lots of miscellaneous work has been done like painting the valve covers to match the 340 and taking off the carburetor and ordering parts we'll need for the next steps. I'm just happy for now to see the empty engine compartment waiting for the 340.

Speaking of the engine compartment, we're trying to decide if we should paint it or not while the engine is out. Believe it or not, the original paint is in excellent condition with the exception of a small area right around the battery tray. I kind of like the idea of the original paint remaining but I've seen some cars that have painted all black under the hood and it does look nice...anyway, we have a few days to figure that out.
