And you'll have to figure out how you will address the paint that will likely chip off all the attaching bolts.

For others watching this question relates to 67-70 Shelbys ;)

Not to get off topic too much but.  John,  I think the experts will advise the oil pan bolts will have a shadow of how the paint was sparayed and should see some slightly lighter or bare metal toward inner part around bolts and pan .  Also  do you have the correct oil pan with correct baffle as Ed meyer helped advise me and I have had correct baffle made...

Thank you---to get it done even remotely correct I will remove oil pan, strip the paint reinstall , mask the engine and paint it again-- sad part is that I paid to get it work done and know I am redoing it , fortunately I got lot of help from members- THANK YOU ALL                                                                                                                                                                                     P.S.-if I can give just one advice to next person just starting same endeavour;                                                                                                 Do not ever buy cheap bargain price parts from unknown source, they are to expensive--spend more money and parts from more expensive places, like Meyer parts, Perkings , Bob Gains etc.---- in general guys from SAAC community, you will pay more initially but save money evetually because parts are correct and work--john
