Well I painted some other engine parts, what do you think?
I personally like the way they look now, they used to look awful and now they shine again hehe.
The combination of orange and black is because I intend to paint the engine bay orange.

Engine is mounted to the engine stand and ready to be cleaned thoroughly. The head is going for resurfacing and soon I will start the assembly process . At least that's what I hope for since I don't have much time left to work on that, maybe about a couple of hours a week.

I decided to drop the project of making it a not-so-alike replica of the Rote Sau and found some inspiration somewhere else.

I want to get my W115 as clean and goodlooking as this one: Original Gangster: A Dmpd W115 Benz - Speedhunters
Of course I will change the colors cuz I'll make it my own.
