Haha no drooling on my thread.... Gotta keep it clean.
And Brodie I'm probably gonna send a new steering wheel to you to get stitched in white.. I don't want to do green cuz I think it's one of those colors that are gonna b hard to match with anything else... So the interior is gonna stay white and engine and calipers are gonna b green.
The block is READY for build up

Next couple days I'm gonna be doin some painting on parts that need to b done and ill post some pics of that when teh get done.

Hope that head has the cam caps that came with it, otherwise it's a paper weight for you.

Green FTW. Inspires me to bust out my powdercoating gun and do some work on my own 2.4L. It needs some serious clean-up.

I like your black on green theme.
