Cubic inch question

I have a Ford 8ba that has been bored .040 over and has a Merc. crank. What cubic inch does this come out to? Thank you and sorry for my ignorance.

Re: Paint type

I bought some lacquer from TCP to edge the car out and was not happy with the quality (seemed very thin with not much pigment). I see Mac's has PPG lacquer for $800 a gallon, don't think I can...

Powder coating wheels

Anyone have their wheels powder coated black? Wondering if I should go with a 80% or 90% gloss. Trying to look close to factory sheen.

8ba fuel pump

I have a 8ba in a model A. The firewall is recessed for clearance, the stock glass bowl fuel pump won't clear the firewall. Did Ford make a 8ba pump with no glass bowl?

Re: 32 grill shell

I bought a Vintique, it seemed pretty nice until I compared it to an original. It lacks the detail but it's affordable.
