    One is Hugger Orange, and the other is Black. I like lighter colors(not black) due to the ease of spotting things like header and oil leaks. Machine shop painted the heads on my 383 for me and i don't feel like changing their color. May make the block some other color yet though.

    I forgot, I have a naked motor too. Man is that thing Rusty. Dad insisted it stay bare metal. Wanted to have the engine be a bit of a sleeper, who would suspect power from a big rusty block? Shame to do to a couple thousand dollar race engine IMO....

    i meant to include space for oil and brown, but ran out of room - other things took priority, like pink. i wanna see that pink motor - maybe the purple one too. ;)

    If you like the nekkid look but dont care for rust Use Dupli - color's " cast iron " hi - temp paint. Looks like fresh iron just more shinier. Another thing I do 'cause I kinda like the " natural " look is I wire wheel things like my t- stadt housing and I paint them clear.
