Updated pics of my '76 Impala restoration

Hi Everyone Just an update on my '76 Impala, got the motor out while the car is getting stripped and re-sprayed. Started cleaning the motor and painting it. I have for the time been left the old tappet covers on, as I do not want the new chrome ones to get damaged when the engine gets re-installed. ...
