Yes! Jim gave me some more head today!

The first picture is about a week and a half before the rest. The head finally installed after a rather long wait because of head-gasket thickness issues...and practically not having one ready in the first place. My fault. CFM ordered a Cometic 0.66" as that is what Focus-Power used before.

Last week, Jim utilized his robot-like welding skills to plug up some holes. I switched from a SVT head to a standard Zetec head; so the holes align differently.

I had planned on getting the valve cover painted, but it actually looks pretty cool the way it is. I'll just get it clear coated. Time to get the pipes re-coated. Today I received these pics from Jim....get a roll of paper towels.

Big shout-out to Jim and Chris for all the help! Truly appreciated.
