Mostly due to NO ONE having Chrysler Blue readily available.
So I got the block sprayed:
Laid some Wrinkle Black on the valve covers (it was still very wet here):
Once that had all dried, we set into putting it back together:
Cylinders cleaned right up with a quick hone, then we got the bottom end back together. Waiting on cam break in/assembly lube to get the cam and lifters back in, so progress will wait til next week.
