Another little bunch of stuff has arrived at The Huggers nest.....
First these unusual, I do know why, but in my opinion very cool option...the fender guards from GM. I had a NOS set before and now I found another NOS kit so now its complete to the car.
This new box has never been opened since it was sealed in 1968-69:
.. here together with the other kit:
I also did order a complete, 41 pcs, set of chrome plated valve covers that should be very similar to the original part. According to seller they feature the correct height, positioning of the holes, wire loom stands and brackets, most of all they feature the correct drippers as per originals. They do look good enough for me at least...
Some small but good stuff for the starter as well, heat shield and front bracket.
And finally the new cam from Crane. A 10313 that hopefully will do the job!
