I did exactly what Frank said for my first set, but there wasn't much in the way, and I have heard nothing but good things about Tim at The Fab shop, I wish he was closer, but I have a guy in Windsor that is going to build a new set for the wife's truck, its an 86 bronco and the spring and shock tower is in the way alot, I don't know how far that is for you but if your interested let me know and I will dig up some contact info for you

If you don't like my first option, check out Maddog Headers. He does production headers (the old JR Headers) and custom. Not that far away. He did a custom set of fenderwell for 460 in my '57 Ford. Very nice. You can look at mine on you way to his place.

Bring your chassis and see if the stainless ones fit!

Just a couple of options.

Dang Gasman, I wish that those exited about 3" or 4" farther forward. They'd fit a tube chassised 72 Top Sportsman type pick up that I'm building for a customer.....

Switch them side to side!!!

I know this statement is a lightning rod for comments but here goes.
After paying the price for a couple sets of custom built headers, maybe one should find the headers and build the chassis around the headers. If performance does not suffer, why not?????????

A good set of custom stainless headers can run $1500-1800. South West will sell a chassis front half for less than $1000!!
