The overhead shot looking down the barrels is the best. Looks great Coop.

Engine is in.  
Doing this the hard way....engine, then bell housing/clutch, then trans, driveshaft etc (not able to set up the K frame jig procedure). Any words of wisdom regarding this approach would be appreciated.

Once again, looks great Coop.
That is the same procedure I used every time on my Road Runner. Leave the clutch to flywheel bolts loose until the trans is slid in. Even with an alignment tool it can still take some effort to wiggle the input shaft in. Also, it is much easier doing all of this without the H pipe in the way, after it's installed, the transmission installation is a pain.

Sure is shiny!  You going to be able to drive that after you're done screwing it together?

Nice! It' really no problem to install it with the bellhousing on it? You've probably put in plenty of clutches. You'll have it buttoned up in no time. Are you working with a lift or on the garage floor (like I do)? If you need any suggestions for ease of installation at this point, I'm sure you can get plenty! Looks great!

Great pics Coop...I'm following along and adding these ones to my archive.
 
One question about the fuel pump though- that one looks quite a bit different than the one I ordered,  
mine is real close to the one on Frank B's motor.

you can do the same thing and get the same results with a $15.00 glass jar aerosol paint sprayer 2 pints of paint ,some hardener and thinner for $100.00 .primer,epoxy is not necessary  on engine.

Coop, Glad to see it finally coming together.it's been a long time coming
 
For the un-informend,,,,,, IF i may. And this is just MY opinion .  
fuel pump is Hemi pump. the L bracket in the spark plug wire routing kit on the front of the left cylinder head  is not used on 69 B-bodies, plug in the rear of the intake manifold should be an outey and not an inney
