Headers - to be or not to be
My '70 SS looks really nice except for the rusty headers. Before installing the motor I used 700* stove heat paint and it burned off. The headers are in reasonable shape except for a pinhole leak in the 1/4" thick flange section on #2 cylinder. I am going to remove and weld in the pin hole, maybe. The next question is: do I weld / repair and send out for rust coating or buy a new set with rust coating already on them. Is it worth the cost of powder coating used headers. The Headers are Hookers. They fit perfect and I can reach everything as is. The new powder coated are $500.00+.
