Yes, it looks great in the photo. Sounds like there is interest here for the one you are working on. Put it in the classifieds here if you decide to sell it.

Thanks for the update, make sure you post a picture or two when you get the decals. Did you have the head off? Is it valve or ring issues with the compression?
