got all of the pin striping off today and it looks way better already! and i started sanding, i really don't think there'll be too much body work which is always a plus.
and most exciting of all, got a call from the machine shop finally! i guess they've had a machine down and have also been super busy.. but they say .040 (which seems high for an engine that had no known problem, just high mileage i guess) will clean it up so now i have my pistons, rings, bearings, gaskets, oil pump, and water pump coming on its way!!! parts are federal mogul, melling, perfect circle, and cardone
