    Crank bearings look brand new. Rod bearings have wear to the copper layer but that's expected. All cam and crank journals are perfect. Off to machine shop soon.

    Block and head with new valve seals are at the machine shop. 1-3 weeks. Parts list being started. Will need roof wrap removed when this is over. Planning to get it painted metallic black. Same to mirror caps.

    It's the most accurate depiction of how I feel in regards to the glitter and how the glitter got there as well as why it was there.

    Bottom end is assembled and torqued. Heads didn't get returned with alignment dowels so new ones here Tuesday.

    Here are pics of the original pistons and rods. 140k of 161k miles were with Rotella.

    Roof repainting will happen in between tune revisions. Jet Black Mica.
