Restoration Impossible: Tackling the Engine Ancillaries

With our lights installed up front, one of our next steps was to deal with our engine ancillaries. To fit the engine, we had to remove the carburetors. Now we could reinstall them, and once we had everything on the passenger side of the engine hooked up, we could install the air box as well.

From there we could mount and wire our alternator that we picked up from Gustafson that looks like an original generator.

After that we installed the radiator and cooling hoses.

Engine bay looks really nice.  When the carburettors start to look bigger than the engine you know you must be doing something right. smiley

Tim, can you post the paint brand / code of the cam cover paint?

I don't like crow but I'm eating it with gusto.  First, I wrote this car would be the parts car for the one you restore eventually.  Then I was thinking you should've painted it the original color it came with but this looks so beautiful, I am at a loss for words.  Don't listen to me.
