Wow shocker, they really did have a good time with photoshop, but with what you've done to the seats that's great, they don't need photoshopping now, keep up the good work buddy looking forward to seeing the end result now.
I'm gonna find me a reckless woman,
Razor blades and dice in her eyes,
Just a touch of sadness in her fingers,
Thunder and lightening in her thighs.

Stripped head today, cleaned cylinder head by hand. Cam carrier, lid and all the alloy mounts and brackets will be sent off for vapour blasting as they are beyond hand cleaning.

Refurbed exhaust manifold and down pipe this afternoon and managed to get block painted back to satin black. I found an American product called Calyx which returns the cast manifold back to that cast look without any painting.
Manifold before....

And after......

Block painted ready to start re assembly....
