Haha yeah , I over ordered on the inside clutch cover pics. The alternator cover is in the wrinkle paint finish and looks pretty good in the flesh, getting the old paint off the alternator cover was a real bitch and I'm very happy with the powdercoated clutch cover. Getting a little closer but still a way to go. As soon as the engines back I'll be getting a lot more momentum and some updates.

I found the wrinkle paint to be fairly difficult to gain a consistent finish, its also hard as nails , I just hope I haven't applied too much in order to achieve an acceptable finish. I think all the little angles and nooks and crannies makes it difficult. Fingers crossed she won't form cracks and I'm back to square one as it was a lot of work to get it to this point.
