Don't kid yourself---those engines run a lot better than the way you think they look! I've seen some really hot looking paint jobs on engines that look bad to the bone, but end up breaking or runs like sour grapes. Dave is not a professional painter, but he is a professional hi-perf marine engine builder....and his stuff runs and stays together! Let the records show....his reputation speaks for itself!

Anyway, Dave paints the engines with the colors the customer asks for.

Mark, I'm not so sure about that "not a professional painter" stuff, LOL, He did an excellent job on my valve covers and flame arrestors, after he redid my engines. 3 seasons, and all I do is change the fluids, I'm thinking about throwing in a fresh set of plugs this spring. Ahhhhhh, that's what I said last spring too. LOL

We've got 2 seasons on drag racing our 8 second 66 chevelle with a 565 and spraying the he!! out of it. Looks like we're gonna pull it out, and bring it back to him for a refresh in a couple weeks, as soon as we get it back from the chassis shop.

Meeting Dave, and letting him do all of our engines, was the absolute best change I ever made.
