Multi colors on engine bring it life and make a one carb (bor-ing) motor much more interesting.  Rear spoiler improvement is something I wouldn't notice much, let alone try to improve.  Your attn. to detail is remarkable.  Thanx for tackling a monster.

Thanks Harron.

Finished up the engine tonight by installing the plumbing and wiring. The kit supplied HT lead was useable, if a tad thick but the tubing supplied for the plumbing was unuseable, as it is too stiff and kinks on tight(ish) bends. I replaced them all with small bore silicone tube/wire insulation. I also added a couple of wires to the starter solenoid.

Engine wiring looks very good.  The looking down foto shows small sink marks on the headers probably won't show.  Fuel lines to carb add a lot as well.  It all helps!

I agree the plug wires are a tad to big, but they do work.
