    Tough to find a NOS heat riser, used ones are usually pitted real bad and non-functioning. There are aftermarket ones available but are pricey. There is no heat shield on the passenger manifold, just the drivers side.

    Thanks Terry, Thanks for the informaiton. The aftermarket heat riser do not look the same as the OEM and I do not want to get a deduction when showing.

    Well, after a very hot day yesterday in the Carolina's. We did manage to bring the chassis and the body together.

    Now the fun begins!

    Good Morning everyone, does anyone know where I can send the hood latch to get plated? I had a local person ready, but he is no longer doing small projects.

    I’m sure there are lots of different places but for gold anodized parts I used Steve Gregori at brakeboosters.com, always pretty quick and parts came out very nice. All of the gold cad on my car was done by him. Just a suggestion if you can’t find anything else, he’s in CA.
