Bill.... this build is flat out beautiful. Those headers look awesome.. I can't wait to see more of this build. Is your front radius rods made from tubing or from rod. I see it looks like you crimped the ends flat where the bolts go thru. Keep up the great work

I took a look at your albums. Truly nice lathe work. Question....
How did you get the bolt detail in the valve covers?
