If you had 2 of them you could span a glass top between them

Get the block acid dipped and cleaned. Get some bolts the same thread size as block, screw bolts through glass into block.

Yeah Was gonna get it dipped or attempt at doing it by hand or something depending on how dirty it is With the base what would be the best method with the glass i was just going to put some of them rubber pads you use on glass tables

I'd use those but just get clear ones so that it doesn't look shit.
Polish the shit out of the block first. Will be worth it!

Yeah I'll use clear ones... And if it doesn't polish up really well then ill get it dipped.
I would of much rather used a boxer engine as the shape of the block would suit a table much more.
