Hey Boys,
When planning out driling speed holes in covers what patterns do you use?
 
Any pics would be great.
 
Thanks.

I throw my engine into the ring. I have drawn alot of inspiration from this site and hope to continue. Took me a while but I hope you all enjoy. Keep them coming!

Wow WNTITAL that's a beautiful engine!

Here's my SL350. Paint is VHT Engine Metallic Burnt Orange on top and VHT Satin Black bottom.

I still need to finish polishing the fins and adjuster caps and new chrome on the points and tacho covers.

Cyclhed- I believe I looked at yours for inspiration. That's why I did my fins the same way. Nice job. It really stands out. Did you paint your engine apart or together?

Oh cool! I took it apart. It had sat for years and the rings were stuck. I honed the bores and installed new rings and lapped the valves. Your fins turned out great. Did you use a block on them or by hand? I filed mine to clean off the casting flash and they are still really sharp edged.

Thanks man! I found some burnt orange metal flake Duplicolor for the tins that will hopefully match.
