I know there are a few threads on this same topic but they seem to be scattered & hard to trace.  Does anyone have detailed pics of a completed small block (350) they would care to share? I am looking for detail on what should and shouldn't be painted.
Check out this link for Lucas Restoration as they present some photos of a 350 engine that has been restored....there are a lot of photos but look through them until you reach the engine and front subframe section.

The photo of the engine in this quote is not quite the original paint job....this is actually a photo of the engine showing a quick and dirty paint job using a rattle can and I think the the engine was even in the car at the time of the painting.  This photo was taken before the restoration and during the tear down phase.

Jerry,

Marty,

Why don't you look at this link..... https://picasaweb.google.com/LucasRestorations
 
It is the menu of the gallery of photos by Lucas Restoration showing numerous cars that they have restored or currently in the process of restoring.  The car that I am currently taking these photos from is the one entitled Keith's RS/SS. There are 5 albums on this car and look at them all to see the before and after photos.

Very good work that these guys do and the photos do show that.


BTW....I'm sure that the engine and sub frame work was done by Jerry Mc...he usually this work for them.

I looked at lucas's site before and to say I was impressed with their work would be an understatement. Thanks for jogging my memory!

Yeah, I looked for hours for the post I had from them when I was looking for the right motor mounts for my car.  Someone had one where the mounts had been painted like that and I couldn't find it.  I thought maybe that was it until I looked again and realized that paint job was not a resto.
