I may rib and poke at ya from time to time, but you know it's all in good fun and I'd expect the same from you. In all seriousness, that young man is never going to forget this experience. This is how memories are made.

Got the intake manifold on it tonight and some red paint.

Another coat tomorrow night...

Will put it back in the truck on the weekend.

I have everything we need done for the, except one thing I have to order some
stainless tubing to make some new heat shields for the plug wires. But I can
do that later.

You know what, Ron? We probably really do need an "Like" button.

Paint finished.

3 coats of red really look nice!

Tomorrow we are going to be putting it back in the truck, I hope...

Looks nicer than when new from the factory! Shame to put it back into that truck where it can’t be seen. Maybe you need to replace some of the fenders with plexiglass so people can admire the motor.

Looks way too nice to put in a ratty old pickup buddy. Go find him an old charger now and take him through an entire restoration!
