The engine bay is in primer! It isn't perfect, but I think all the flaws will sand out in the primer layer. I still need to add seam sealer to all the cracks, then it will get a few coats of sealer primer before paint.
I'm pretty happy with the symmetry.
Next I am prepping the front crossmembers for paint. These were sandblasted and powder-primered a few months ago, then I touched them up with some bondo and epoxy primer. Tonight I finished up the putty work, they are ready for urethane primer and single-stage black.
I also need to finish weld, putty, and paint the fan shroud I made a few months ago. I'm going to re-work a few spots, but I think I'm happy with the general idea of it.
