This is what the engine looks like after I got her back together. I had a guy from work do some pin stripping and what not just for fun and something to look at. Eventually I will probably have a replica engine cover over this anyway!

 I wanted to slightly upgrade my engine, nothing major. So I rebuilt the 3800 Supercharger, made myself a 3.4" pulley instead of the 3.8", and milled out what seamed to me a restrictive portion of the supercharger. Not sure if this will help, with my luck I probably hurt the performance a bit, woops!?!? Either way I planned on adding headers and a cold air intake, nothing major as I feel this engine will have plenty enough power for what I plan to use it for! ;)

Thought I'd play with some different colors in hopes to figure out what I wanted the finished car to look like. I went in looking for something similar to Plum Crazy Purple, and came out with Dupont Hot Hues Purple Rhapsody. I like it a lot but am curious if I shouldn't just go with the Lamborghini OEM purple?

Removed the engine cradle, I sent it off to be blasted and powder coated along with the rear spindles and A-arms! Turned out the car was a little rougher than I was hoping!!! Got my block and heads back from the machine shop. The block was dipped and honed otherwise they said everything looked good on it, the bad news was one of my heads was cracked which required me to purchase another one! In an effort to try and catch up with where I am in my build process I will post some more tomorrow as for now I'm off to work!!!

While waiting for my block and heads to get back from the machine shop, I decided to remove the old iron duke. I also removed the roof section, which I'll probably get a lot of crap for not reinforcing, but I took tons of measurements and plan on wrapping a tube chassis around the tub anyway!!!

Thanks Jayso,
I will keep you and your parts in mind as I continue my build. You're making really good progress on that roadster of yours, can't wait to see it finished!!!

Still trying to play ketchup here!!! Anyway the pictures below are of the motor being torn down. I didn't want to spend a lot on my donor engine beings I had every intention of rebuilding whatever I got.

Welcome to the board and good luck with your project. One thing is for sure is you definitely have your work cut out for you. I make all of the hinges you will need for your project and door handles as well.

Picked up a 3800 Supercharged from the local junk yard. Saved a couple bucks by pulling it myself!

Shortly after that I set my sites on getting as much unneeded parts off the car as possible!!!
