Neat car, I had a 425hp Biscayne a while back. If you decide to pass please let us know, deserves restoring!

Talk about a total no-brainer for that price.

Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Headers
« on: October 01, 2016, 03:26:00 AM »
Jon, there is a big 'Headers by Ed' tag welded to the headers so I did a little searching around once I bought them. I was happy to see they looked almost identical to the Headers in the ad you posted. I got them exactly like you see them so they must have been NOS when they were coated.

I ended up stumbling across a set of these Z/28 'Headers by Ed' and the workmanship is really, really nice:



Yes, sometimes you'll see some strange and/or funny tubing bends on headers that are trying to have
equal length. I can't think of too many crazier looking bends than on the Stingray headers shown below
in a June '68 ad by Headers by Ed (Racing Exhaust Specialties). Note the Douglass style upper flanges.





This 1969 ad shows Z-28 street headers. Here it looks like the Douglass style upper flanges have been
replaced with the early style Hooker Header flange but with a circular notch cut-out for the temp sender.
These guys look like they made very good headers. (Jon Mello Collection)

If a floating pin setup makes noise, something is very wrong with the machine work.

The Gibbs made a huge improvement. Not entirely free of oxidation but they seem to be getting better every day.

Gibbs seems to be helping...which is great because it saves me some manual labor!

Where do you guys recommend advertising these wheels for sale? I'd like to avoid Ebay. Wish we had a classifieds section on CRG....

I went through about a quarter can to do all four of mine, so it actually coats pretty well! Spray it on, let it sit for a few, and wipe it with a small cloth to distribute it, like you would a wood stain.

Beautiful weather in MI today, so I gave the wheels a really good once-over with the Gibbs and will wait a few days as directed to see what happens to the white areas.

I'm leaning toward hitting the outside machined lip with a very fine scotchbrite to bring out the original machined finish. What do you guys think?

To address an earlier question - sorry 69Z28-RS, I missed it the first time around. I will be selling or trading these to someone who can use them, since I have no cars with a 5-on-5 bolt pattern. I briefly considered modifying one of my first-gen Camaros to 5-on-5 but I think these wheels are too wide to fit anyway.
