[E-Type] Update on progress

Hi all,

A short update on the restoring of my E-type.

This morning (monday) I paid the mechanic shop a visit to see how they are
getting on with the engine (4.2 L).

The engine gets a complete rebuild, this sets me back for Euro 3000.- , (~
US$ 2900.-)
All the new parts have arrived, it pleased me a lot to see that the
mechanic had ordered a complete gasket
set from Payen. This company has cylinder head gaskets with a “sealing
agent” of a high quality silicone elastomer that is printed onto the gasket
surface to enhance its fluid sealing properties. This gasket is also
recommended by the JEC.

The block has been skimmed and cleaned.

This week they will put the engine together and I will go over and make a
lot of pictures.
