It sat on the stand for a long time while I was cleaning up the frame.

I cleaned up the oil pan and was trying to put it back on and was having a dickens of a time. It then hit me. It's on an engine stand. So I flipped it and then it went on easy.

I used Dupli-Color Daytona Yellow, that is very close to original color.

I hope to put it back on the frame next weekend and then start working to see if I can get it to run. No telling how long that will take me.
