LOL, i guess I have. Between spring time things, yard, mowers, and this Silverado I bought, Old Rusty has not received much attention.

I have A/C compressor, drier, orifice tube, tensioner assembly, sitting on the work bench. Give me this week to finish getting the truck up to par and I will try to go back to building next week. I said yesterday she looked lonely and neglected.

Thanks for caring.

We must use Amazon.ca up here. If they don't have stock, we get notification almost immediately and can cancel with no issues.
Well, so far that is.
The last one we had was that damn Honda V6 fender. It kept saying a "projected shipping date" and it passed then passed, no fender dudes, it doesn't exist but thanks anyway.

And the guy at the Honda dealer told me the same thing happened to him when he bought some parts for his vintage Bronco.

Personally if something doesn't ship within a week I inquire when I can expect it to ship. No answer within two business days I cancel via Pay Pal and move on.

( Brian may be cutting Amazon' s worth a little short. I'm sure they have at least half a dozen 1958 Rambler rear hubs in stock ready to ship as we speak!)

I am seeing their name coming up on searches I do that I know are full of crap, like the hub for my Rambler, I think their growth is scary, they are making Walmart look like the neighborhood mom and pop.

But they haven't billed my credit card yet.

Better price, but POOR service

If I could afford it, the Sanderson's you have with the black coating would be my choice too. The headers on the flathead have a silver ceramic coating on them and they have really held up well also.

My friend Melvin has loaned me 3 different sets of stock manifolds plus I have the set that is on the dually. Hopefully, one of these 4 styles will work.

I think you could buy your own battleship from Amazon.
Amazon had those Headers for about ten bucks less, free shipping, and if you have a problem Amazon handles it .
I'm not saying that this will always work but from my experience it works 95% of the time. Usually you can find a better price. One other thing to consider is location. Buying your part in another state saves sales tax as well.
In the past I've saved up to 300% on items. Same part, same packaging, just cheaper.

Give it a try. All you can do is save money.

Excellent advice BB.

Another option of shorty headers. May leave more room around the sector and frame.

The ragtop has a pretty massive crossmember. The shorty headers would probably be a much safer way to go.

LOL, if my time had any value, I would not have started this project to begin with.

Seriously, One of my friends has loaned me a set of 66-67 Chevelle (I think) manifolds that appear to tuck in pretty tight. I am hoping to make them work. Since I am building a cruiser, I am very willing to run factory exhaust manifolds if they will clear.

I really do like the idea of the Sanderson's though. Not only do they look good they, should be very efficient and never leak.

John
There are many headers to chose from for the Nova sub. Look for 68-70 big block headers, as the sub is the same in those years. Couple hundred bucks should get you a painted set.
