Thanks gentlemen! I sure wish I had the money to do a full rebuild at a shop, and I suppose I probably still could someday, but I am trying to be careful with our money as our son starts college in the Fall. I think it will do fine for what I need; cruising around town at 30 mph and an occasional 65 mph trip around the local bypass to see my folks. Most of the time we take my wife's car. Thanks again for the encouragement!

Not sure why the front air horn is darker. They've both been cleaned in the same carb dip with the same method. It came off of a W-1 cast as at another GM Divisuon "RPD" instead of "C" for Chevy. My guess is the RPD's have a different tint in the metal alloy. I may paint it, but with air cleaners in place, it probably won't show too much. I also may paint the pump housing caps semi gloss black. I don't like the original paint scheme and I'm trying to vary it a bit.

Thank you Sir! I guess I have another air horn I could switch out. I need to measure the venturis first.

Engine looks fantastic! And I'd leave the air horns as they are. I think it tells a cool story.

I started messing around with a stainless fuel set up and some other goodies that arrived today.

Thank you! I might get one more of those glass bowls. Maybe have one per carb. They are smaller than I realized and might look cool!
