434 getting back on track 

I haven't updated my engine build for a variety of reasons. I was sick for weeks this spring, then the pistons were not machined correctly and then my wife was in the hospital for a week. Anyway, time to get some motivation going so I cleaned up everything and painted the block. I ended up using POR15's engine enamel again and roughly tried to approximate the appropriate 455HO color. It should be a tad lighter but I like it a shade darker blue. I used 4 parts Chrysler blue, 1 part White, then thinned the mixture 10% with lacquer thinner, It came out way better than I expected with only a few dry spots where it was hard to get a full size HVLP gun to go.

Total Cost: $90
