    Wanted to post this earlier, but wasn't at home where I could upload pics to computer. Finally got the 6.2 almost completely assembled, save for the turbo oil lines and a couple other very minor things. Not bad for a couple of n00bs working weekends!

    I do, give me a few minutes to finish my paper and I'll edit this post with a pic. What exactly do you need to see? Maybe I have a closeup of what you need.

    EDIT: Looking through my pictures, strangely enough I didn't get a very good pic of this side of the motor :doah:. Here is what I do have. If you want, I can take pics of specific areas next time I am down there to work on it.

    Good job, but the real "Woo-hoo" moment is when you first hear it finally clatter to life.

    BTW, i like the black and orange...

    Congrats!

    Why not paint the rest of the block?

    I painted all the removable parts at home after cleaning and de-greasing. We were working on the engine in a butt-cold garage and pressed for time and space. I will probably do a little more touch-up and etc. once all the details are taken care of. Was just more concerned about getting the engine together than getting it pretty at the time. I need to find brush-on high-temp paint so I won't have to tape everything off to paint the block w/o getting black overspray on the valve covers (like I did once already and it took 5 coats to cover :doah:).
