If anyone is wondering what happened to my blown F20c I did put it to good use! I parted most of it out or swapped stuff to the f22c I got. I sold the head and basically everything besides the block and some random stuff I couldn't sell. I knew the block was no good so that was junk, right? Negative. I've seen in the past people make sweet tables out of engine blocks, complete engines, whatever. So that was the plan. So I got a junk head off a user on here for cheap and a crumby valve cover from a user off Facebook for cheap. Mind you, this plan originated in 2014 and I literally just finished it to get it off my damn engine stand lol. Decided to make this thing pretty so I went for the aluminum VHT engine paint.

Primer





Paint







So my original plan was to have a complete looking motor, water pump, alternator, belt, vtec solenoid, etc. but I lost interest and I'm happy with how it came out. So as far as mounting the glass goes I originally was going to have the extra head bolts come out of the valve cover then weld the rods to them. I didn't have the patience at the time as I was hammering away so I came up with a different solution. I decided to weld the rods to the oem header that I was using. I went ahead and buzzed all the heat shield brackets off the header to clean it up, measured, welded, prepped and painted with the same ceramic coating I had left over from the downpipes. Vualá!

Glass. What am I going to do for glass? Word of advice guys and gals, never under estimate the beauty of the free section on Craigslist lol. I found this back in 2014 also. A perfect, undamaged, 24" by 24" piece of very nice glass. Most likely off a table of some sort.

Here's the look as of the other night. I may or may not stir up a plan on how to get the two other pistons and rods on the intake side of the motor for some better support but I'm not too worried about getting back into this at the moment.

Some progress pictures on the final exhaust wrap after they were wrapped, banded, dried, and silicone coated! Came out better than I expected.

Took a swing by to see Joe at Prodigy Powder coating to check in on the manifold and the turbine housing. All I can say is this guy does some damn good work if anyone is looking for some powder coating or Cerakote coatings! Turn around time was quick and Joe is awesome to deal with!

I got my s2k about 6 months ago and dream that one day mine can be as sick as yours. Honestly you give me inspiration when everyone else gives me doubt.

Thanks man! You can achieve anything you put your mind to if you have the motivation for it! Some may have the motivation to build an awesome car but not enough to create a build thread like this. I've been meaning to do something like this for a long while now and finally forced myself to get it going. But it's nice to receive feedback like yours! I appreciate it!
