Hey you can't be so negative. ON the piston slap issue. I have had motors that piston slapped like crazy and still ran like champs. Litterally the one in my red lebaron was so bad it sounded like a damned rod knock. Sucker lasted 45k before throwing a headgasket. I would throw a headgasket on it and still drive it and I bet it would last another 45k. No probs. Looks good man. Glad to see you are still working on it.
Keep up the good work. One day you will have a show car. Just one thing at a time!
