I painted the block and valve cover this afternoon. I used VHT low gloss black engine enamel for the block and VHT wrinkle red (Ferrari stlye) for the valve cover

Block scrubbed and wiped down...

After first coat...

After final coat...

This was right after I sprayed the valve cover, I'll have to wait a few hours to see how the wrinkle turns out. Once it's cured I'm going to sand the paint off the raised parts of the valve cover to give it a nice machined aluminum look...

All the parts I need to start assembling the motor have been ordered. I hope to have them within the next couple weeks. My goal now is to have the motor swapped and broken in before the first midnight cruise.
