Well, my winter project has been put on the fast track due to an unexpected set of circumstances. I had planned to spend the winter painting the engine compartment and dropping my new 383 in the car at a nice easy pace. Unexpectedly, last week I was diagnosed with cancer and am scheduled for surgery 2 days after Christmas. I will probably be laid up for a long while so I decided it would be best to get the motor in the car now and this way when I am well again, the car will be just about finished and I could enjoy it. Here are some pics of my progress.
