1972 Convert - Pewter/black/351

I had to replace the valve stem seals on my '72 convertible and took the opportunity to clean and detail everything under the hood. It was pretty much original, so 47 years of road grime and grease made for some dirty work, but well worth the effort. Found a weak plug wire and I was also able to finally loosen my stuck distributor to properly set the timing (mentioned in another thread). I've used VHT 'Roll Bar' satin black for years on other projects, and find that it holds up well and cleans up easily. Nice to tinker under the hood now with clean hands! Not meant to be 100% factory correct, just clean. Some before and after pics:
