As Yoda would say, "Very clever, you are!"

Nice work.

Thanks fellows for the nice comments.
I'm still kind of at a loss on what direction to take this winter....I'm wondering if I can beat the cold weather and get this thing painted.....or at least prepped and primed. Not sure what to do yet.
I did dig out my Koenig 355 "Supertop" and put it on to see how it fit with the massive tub rebuild, and it fits alright. I'm going to leave most of the mounting holes in the body so I can easily put the top on at a later time. It's in pretty rough shape though, so I put it back away...I think I'll leave that on the back burner for now.
Bad news though: I got some white exhaust, and I can smell coolant "burning". I think I'm going to have to pull the head and see what's going on. I read up on the head gasket knowledge floating around on internet land, and it seems I might have goofed by not re-torquing the head nuts. Bleah. Just for giggles I checked out Rockauto and they seem to have some screaming deals on valves and guides...I may think about doing something there at the same time....a winter project.
