Thats a terrific looking set up - and I think the finish looks great - real character and that oily rag look I admire. I hope to see it at a rally one day.

Best

I know, sorry but for the life of me I fail to see the point in leaving engines "As found" it isn't original, it isn't nice to look at and it isn't the right thing to do.

Having said that it does look nice as it is but for me, I'd paint it.

To be honest i hate painting engines .... it makes the restoration so much longer waiting for paint to dry and harden off then flatten back etc etc . Yes if done well does looks the dogs nuts but alot of effort .
