The latest project to come into the shop has been this '40 Chevy sedan. It's a pretty cool car that's been on the road for quite a while. It's got a 409 in it with power steering and disc brakes.
When the owner put the car together, he used a set of modified fenderwells. With the aftermarket power steering kits, there is absolutely no room on the driver's side. So, as one could imagine, finding a set of headers that fit and weren't fenderwells is next to impossible. So that's what we are doing...
He actually purchased a set of Sanderson block huggers that he wanted modified. Luckily the passenger side fit without issue but the driver's required a little finesse.
Generally, it's actually easier to make headers from scratch than trying to modify a set....especially to this extent.
