    I recommend Heatshield Products !! Ive put several of their products on my restomod and the fit, finish and quality is there. Cant comment about how well they perform but from what Ive read I have high expectations.

    I think that's why he wants the older front clip, the bumpers are small like classic Mustangs...

    I think mach1mark is right--cut down on the bumpers sticking out--neat little cars, I did several factory recalls on the gas tanks when I worked at ford dealer back then--might check if there is a plastic shield on the back of the tank, supposed to stop sparking in rear collisions--cragar made a keystone style chrome 4 bolt rim for those back in the day.

    Pull that header off and get it powdercoated. It doesn't cost much at all and it will last forever (well, long time anyway). I have a guy up here that would do it for about $50. Maybe less. Would have to ask. He did my set of old USED headers in the typical "silver" finish and they turned out great. He blasts them to metal and then puts on the finish.
