Another false start, maybe Saturday afternoon or Sunday. :D

Too much party with the girls last night must of caused the delay.

Got sidetracked on work for a friend and didn't start on the heads yet. But, on a positive note we had some scrap at work my boss said I could have to use. I am going to put the top on the table I built made from 1/4 in plate steel. I can't complain, no cost at all but some welding and grinding and I have a steel table top. I will finish tomorrow morning and probably start on the heads this weekend sometime.

Here is the work table with the steel top on it. It took all day to get it done had some buckling from the welding.

Ok I've been meaning to ask...why is there a concave or inward curved edge on the table?
having it there obviously took more effort than a strait edge opposite the other edge with the small upward lip?

Ok .
You will have Fun Bob.

Have made your engine & trans midplates like you want ?
I like the idea for your Nova.

I researched during the winter Midplating my old T/A.
Just 1 I found that might work with my car.
Takes the place of he block protecter plate in my McCleod Scatter shield.
Pretty expensive too.
Be nice to have it made. Acetylene table gas cut or CO2 Laser cut.

I did that so it would wrap around me some, take some weight off that outside, and put me closer to the work.

Original and Kool idea on the Workbench Bob.
Look forward to your Front & Midplate and 400 sbc Rehr Morrison in your Chevy Nova.
Be a real strong runner and fast.
