HeyDiego, if I were you I'd paint it first.... LOL ;) :D
Hahaha!!! I know right!

I actually planned on painting the parts before assembly. But since I e been so delayed in getting to work on it, I just put it together. I will paint it still, before installing in to the car. It won't. E as nice as I had wanted but I'd rather be driving. :)

Well, almost there! Ran outta time today. I was hoping to get the engine in the car and fire her up but didn't get to. :( I will have to pick this up when I get back from a trip next weekend. Argh!!! So close yet so far!

Here's a quick update:

Between work and traveling, progress on my rebuild has been slow. But the engine is back in the car pretty much everything save for minor odds and ends. I will be firing up the motor today! I hope all goes well. I have knots in my stomach... I hope I didn't forget or miss anything... :(

Done!!!! It took a month but the Galaxie lives again!

All buttoned up and no leaks. Oil pressure is good at 20 psi while idling. Was at 50 psi (@2,500 rpm) while breaking in the cam. Temp is good, too cycling between 180 degrees and 190 with the electric fan.

Man, she sounds good!!!

I want to thank all you guys for guiding me and pointing me in the right direction. I am now excited to drive my gal again!

Thanks, again! ImageUploadedByAG Free1360347537.983881.jpg
