I'm going to spring for some new headers soon.  I may go the same route as you.  Few companies have options for high ports.

Save me some reading; is your block still 8.2" or did you go bigger?

8.2 deck shp dart with TEA 240 highports. Headers were CPR headers. They all most looked identical to Dennis's Accufabs. Headers are 1 7/8" tubes with 3 1/2" collectors..right side fit perfect ,right side little massaging.

I wouldn't have any big tube header coated until after they were checked for fit in the car.

What Dennis said. Mine were heated and slightly bent in several places. They are ready to coat now but I want to test. Next time I have engine out we will coat.

Rear seat has been out since we installed roll cage. After going to 3 gallon tank in truck decided we better close trunk off. Cut, bent and installed some aluminum today.

Good Move Bob!  

If the aluminum is thick/secure enough it can also help greatly to prevent torsional twist.  For that reason I'd add more rivets around the perimeter.

Dennis I took the pictures before we were finished. Has more rivets. Car has some frame connectors we made 25 years ago. Way over kill in strength . We also have the 10 point cage tied into them. Car is so rigid when I use my 3 ton floor jack on the frame rail right behind the frt tire the whole car will come off the ground. We are looking to add some more bars to tie in frt towers and lower bars that run from rear hoop to frt hoop. The frt engine plate also helped a lot with making the frt a lot more rigid. Thanks for the input.

Today we addressed the problem of the seat siting to high. When I am in the seat with a helmet on my helmet is above the bottom of the roll cage about a 1/2". So we're going to lower seat. So we cut upper seat mout out and lowered 1" and welded back.

Got a chance to work on the 68 today. Checked out steering gear box it's ok but steering shaft at rag joint still rubbing. Removed steering column and rag joint ,going to eleminate rag joint and install coupler knuckle. N/A tune with new larger headers is rich at idle. Drilled air idle jets another .003. Idles a lot better now like it use to.
