Quick update. Decided not to drop the engine in just yet, thought while I have it out I'll take the time to clean the block, box, maybe polish the manifold I have and replace what studs and nuts I can so they look just as shiny! It's gonna be one of those builds...
Also little picture of the manifold and shift linkage I got the other day. Can't see the manifold well but it's a Fujitsubo 2.5" 4-2-1 (more on that when I come to polish it)
Was wondering whether or not to take the heaters out and decided it'd be a good idea to do so.
Didn't take too long as the dash itself wasn't bolted in, just had the frame to deal with (what's left of it lol)
Started off like this, nothing out of the ordinary.
Ended up having to take the dash off for more room but didn't take too long, although ran out of daylight.
And here's it now, much better personally, paint will get touched up at some point after the new year.
There is a few loose wires because I don't have an engine harness to plug them into but until then this will do.
