    ED thanks for the offer, I'm going to first pull off one head and verify valve sizes, since the heads were recently sent to the machine shop.

    I don't know if I have anything to trade (I have one spare set of "186"s just don't recall date) but A169 and A139 would be good dates for my '69 LA Z. If it doesn't work out with Ed LMK and maybe we can work something out.

    I know that copper car very well, you bought it from a friend of mine. I'm happy to see it ended up in good hands and should be a great car when it is finished.

    Frank, I'm pretty happy myself, just verified the valves are 2.02, and the vin on the tranny match up,and also has the correct harmonic balancer.Still alot of work to do, can't wait to drive it.

    Maybe its just the lighting or the paint hasn't cured all the way yet but that looks way too bright to be the correct Copper color. Every copper car I've seen looked really dark and didn't "pop" a whole lot. The pics you have of this car shows an awesome color that pops brightly. I really like it, because I always thought the factory copper lacked allot. Wish I knew what they painted yours in.
