The head had one very worn inlet valve guide, but other than that it was in good nick.

The block and head have gone for vapour blasting.

Underneath looks great. Going to be stunning. What are you going to do for window seals as they are a hot topic right now?

The big downside (for me) is that it makes my tidyish CTI look like a right old turd!

I would also like to know what the plan is with door seals as I planning to take on a similar project pretty soon, though it looks I have my work cut out if I am to match this standard of work.
