No shaming intended! That paint was tough to spray, especially with the rattle-can style sprayer. If I sprayed heavy enough to be smooth it looked like leopard spots. Had to keep it dry and layer on light coats. Not ideal technique but my compressor isn’t hooked up yet.
A few more pics of the installed engine. I'm amazed at how smoothly it went in, the Flop Shop mounts were worth every penny. There's more room with the LS engine than with the stock 360. I think I could fit a bowling ball between the engine and the firewall recess! Plus plenty of access for everything else.
Not much progress with everything else going on... but I was curious and swapped on the H2 wheels and 35" tires. They fit easily, and the wheels are hub-centric to boot. Not sure I like the bigger tire and the wheel, I will probably go back to the Outlaw II's and some 32-33" tires.
