On the heads. Apparently they loosened up a smidgen once they got hot and we didn't re-tighten them so the gaskets got damaged. Tony says this is typical header business.

Trying now to figure out how to attach the license plate since the original mounting brackets are missing and rusted to bits. This is like a mini bluebird in that I feel we will never be "finished" just continue to move from one project to another...lol

You'd be wise to get some copper gaskets like the ones SCE makes: http://scegaskets.com/wp_super_faq/s...haust-gaskets/

If you have good headers,with a heavy flat flange,i would use red high temp siicone sealer.
But,you have to have flat flanges,which most headers do not have.
