GoPro assisted video of priming the motor!

And the moment I've been waiting 2.5 years for:

A little bit of smoke in the video is from oil that made its way down to the headers when I dribbled some out of the filler neck. Otherwise, start up seemed to go well, no coolant smell or oil leaks visible underneath the motor or on top. After letting the car run 15 minutes, I shut it off and began draining the oil to remove shavings from the start up, as per what most people recommend. Tomorrow I will re-fill and hopefully go for a short drive to make sure it's road worthy. Afterwards I'll need to get it inspected.

Thank you to everyone who contributes in any way to this forum. I could never have figured out every little detail without everyone's contributions!
