Awesome! Looking forward to how this comes out.

I've always wanted either an LS or a Radial for a coffee table.

Popped a motor at Sebring this year. I just now took it home. Going to bolt the con-rods to the block, have the piston tops be the stands for the glass going on top. Thinking about putting a light where the crank would sit.

Ooh, thank you for the tip. Was thinking it was gonna be alittle short.

Also, FYI: Piston rings are razor sharp!

This is the exact way I'm going to do my table, but the block and con-rods/pistons will be polished.
