Going to need to modify my injector a little because of the deck height.

Here are a few pictures of the paint that was done by Nub Grafix. The Rocket Science theme comes from my work. Nub added actual missile guidance equations in candy that kind of change with different lighting.

Wow, super nice build

Thank you. It has been a 4 year project. I've been really fortunate to get a lot of help and encouragement. I can't say enough good things about Frank and Scott Parks, Gregg Hekimian, Brian Darcy, Jon Hansen, Bill Masiello and Roo.

The block is a Dart Iron Eagle, compacted graphite cast iron. It was lightened by LSM
