I use the Remflex gaskets on the 38. I have the headers uncapped and recapped so many tinmes it isn't funny. The first set I bought are still on there and working great. The headers seem to be fine as well.
Don't have collector caps on this car as I have electric cutouts. But sounds like they'd be a good choice if I did. I used copper collector gaskets on the Falcon, and they sealed well, and were off and on unknown numbers of times.I use the Remflex gaskets on the 38.

Let's see some pictures! sounds like she has quite the gift. I could never draw myself.I almost forgot another neat thing we discovered at the car show Sunday! Our oldest daughter and family came to the show since they're only 10 minutes away. Our granddaughter is almost 16 yrs. old, and a pretty amazing artist; so her dad asked if she could draw cars too? She grabbed a yellow lined note pad, and sat down behind a 3rd Gen Camaro next to our coupe, and proceeded to draw a perfect copy of the guy's Camaro! I was amazed at the scale, proportions, and accurate details she put into a tiny pencil sketch that was maybe 5"x7" on the paper. Her dad mentioned she might have gotten the frontend slightly short, and she told him she'd drawn it sitting behind the car to one side, so the car looks shorter from that angle. She was spot on!
I asked her to draw the '39 and she did a sketch in about 10 minutes with equal detail. I asked her dad to take pictures of the '39, so she could draw it on a clean 8.5"x11" sheet of paper later. She said this was the first time she'd drawn cars, and I told her she could make some side income going to car shows and sketching cars for guys for $10-$20 if she wanted to. I am biased, but she seems to really have a lot better skills at it than adults I've seen doing this at various shows. They usually want to make the cars sort of out of proportion on purpose to hide the fact they can't get the scale down perfectly.
The guy whose uncle owned the American Grafitti '39 Chevy sent me a copy of the July 1974 Popular Hot Rodding magazine. He also messaged me a copy of his uncle's 1971 California registration. The VIN/engine number on the registration is 68 numbers off from mine. Probably on the same assembly line, on the same day in Ca.!!Had a guy contact me this morning from the HAMB site, who said he saw my '39 and it reminded him of his uncle's '39 Chevy coupe. He sent me a picture from the movie American Grafitti where his uncle's hemi powered '39 Chevy had a couple scenes in that movie. One driving down the main drag, and another at the burger place getting an order delivered to the old coupe! The car was named "Hemi-Roid"
Looks like a cool old Chevy! Said it cost over $11k to build back then, and 4 years of work!
