    Those are 3 Maverick lights per side, cut apart and then put together, I like how they look.

    Have a sequential kit coming from ebay, used it in my last mav, worked good, I may have to add a relay or two to get brighter lights, dont know for sure yet.

    Took the Edelbrock Performer heads to the Cylinder Head Service shop today, the springs will be checked along with everything else, should be ready by the end of the week, UPS delivered the Edelbrock Gasket set this morning, so I now have two sets of head gaskets, both have the same FelPro numbers, came with intake,exhaust,valve cover,distributor and thermostat gaskets, just need to pick up water pump/timing set and oil pan gaskets, in holding pattern on the cam till I see about heads/ valve springs.

    Did a little cutting and welding. Patched in the antenna hole for a cleaner look.
