Was the 2 other emblems the cross flags (cant remember what the black car looked like)?  This car started out as a small block by the looks of the fenders or am I missing something?

Looks like it was filmed here on the opposite side of Nashville..  Nice to see a 1st gen without a spoiler & the DX1..

Its certainly possible but the bends are different.  That doesn't mean that they didn't change their design.  I always thought they were Thorley headers but when I called them about a week ago and asked they didn't have any old catalogs and the part # for the 325 was for a newer model LS swap header..  I asked this question over on Yenko in the "Day 2" section and another member there posted what he had which was an old catalog and the part #'s are different.  So I really do not know at this point.

They are 2" primaries & 3.5" collectors.  Brand is unknown.  They were for a non p/s car so the primary tube had to be "messaged" to make them fit.  They are around 35-40 years old.  I had them blasted and coated them myself.  Part # on the flanges are L 325 & R 325.

thanks.

If it were my parts I would tape off (just James mentioned) the polished areas and get either glacier black or black velvet.  Unless you are doing something more along the lines of custom then you could do another color to accent the body color..  I also only use air cure coatings.  Unless you have an extra oven; you do not want to use your home oven for curing.  If you are married..   Grin

Far from a professional.  I just use a HPLV gun (got a little 4oz job from Harbor Freight).  I turn down my compressor to 60psi and hold the gun to 25psi.  If you go to the website they give you the basics on how to spray their coatings.  I had the headers blasted and then just wiped them down with mineral spirits and let dry then sprayed the coating.  Intake I just pressure washed and cleaned really well then sprayed.  Bearings I hit with a scothbrite pad then cleaned with alcohol then sprayed.  You can buy their tester bottles and it will go a long way.  The bearings and piston skirts I used about 6 oz of coating and around 2 oz on the piston tops and cc.  I bought a pint of the titanium color for the intake and headers and I still have half a bottle.

Also do several test passes until you get the pattern you want down.  I usually hit the entire part with a light coat then wait a few minutes and start hitting the hard to reach spots and then go from there.  Mostly like painting a car or anything else with a HPLV spray gun.

I too use Cerakote coatings.  I love the product.

Titanium is the color I used on the intake and headers.





Intake before.



Intake after.





I also used the micro slick coat on the pistons & bearings.  Along with the piston coat on the pistons & combustion chambers.

Wow. Sad story. I think I'm going to go call my Dad...

You better take advantage of that as much as possible.  Before you know it they will be gone.  I lost my father in Oct of 2006.  There isnt a day goes by that I wish I could talk to him one more time.




Wow. Sad story. I think I'm going to go call my Dad... Amazing collection of parts and projects. I'm sure there are going to be some very happy bidders. Are you going for another Nomad Gary?

Good idea Dave, re calling your dad...  Letting your parents know that you love them and appreciate them for all that they've done for you is important  (while one still has them), I think it adds some comfort to the parents and the children as we and our parents age...

*another Nomad*?   nope.. Smiley..  I've got too many now... at 3.   But always have interests in Nomads... they have been 'instant classics' since their introduction, based on the Waldorf 'Nomad' show car previously.  I also love 30's-40 Fords, although I've never owned one.   I've got too many cars, I can hardly work in my shop as it is.. but I'd love to go to the auction.. Smiley


Gary, Ill tell you what I am going to do for you.  I will help you out and take one of the Nomads off your hands and allow you to go get something at the auction.  Deal?  Sounds good to me.   Grin
