WoW, you have a lot of patching up to do on those front wings!
Tig welding old corroded Aluminium is fun right? ;)
Be sure to get those headlight openings spot on and checked with covers working. It will save you a lot of swearing when the car comes together.

Tig welding on corroded aluminium is funny,yes <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? --> very hard to do a beautifull welding and aluminium welding is not my speciality.
I still have a lot of work to adjust the headlights cover.

I have seen them listed for sale in recent Newsletters by several sellars. I bought a set a few years ago but not at the recent price nor from the listed seller. I would suggest that you check with all the sellers and see if they will give you a better price.
My heads are great. I have had no trouble with them. While you have the engine available I would clean up the intake and exhaust ports by grinding off bumps and smoothing out all the ports. You can also match the manifolds to the block to make a smoother transition. This is called porting here in the USA and can make a better running engine which I believe mine is.

I bought mine about 6 years ago from Jim Higman who lived in Park City, Utah. At that time he owned a S/C 812 Cabriolet and had been a club member for a long time. I don't see him listed as an ACD member in the latest Directory. He was in the cylinder heads business with another fellow who lived in Los Angles area. My heads were shipped from that area. I believe Jim told me that they has sold off the last of their stock. You might try contacting him by either calling him at 435-640-1205 or email at <a href="mailto:higi@mwutah.com]higi@mwutah.com[/url]. If you want to get a few other thoughts from me, my email address is 810cord@sudden link.net
