I complete almost all of the assembly of the motors and then paint them overall aluminum with the SNJ Metal spray before contrasing colors. I also install the headers. The diagram below shos what I do.

One note is that the preinstallation of the headers can be tricky. I first install the right side headers as they rest against the trans and this palces them in the proper position. I use soperglue to do this to instantly set them. I then glue the left side headers in place with tube glue to allow me time to properly space and position them. I use the exhausts as a guide to do this. With the right side fixed this is easy to do. I hold everything in place. (Takes a little practice.) I then iht the left sde header joints with a drop of super glue and activator and it is done. Assembly goes quick.
