    Anyone build headers in North Ga area?

    I am looking for someone to fabricate some headers for my car. Was looking for someone in the Atlanta area or close to it. Engine is a 18 degree 418 SBC Car is a tube chassis Opel. Thanks in advance for inputs.

    Call Phillip Wiggington at Headman headers. They can build you anything if your willing to take them your car. There in Alpharetta /Cumming Ga.

    Well I called Hedman and Lakepoint Chssis today and still trying to get over the shock. Hedman wants $1800 for a pair of headers and Lakeoint want $1500. I swear they must be laced with gold or something. I will keep on looking.

    Chris, buy the header kit from Hedman for about $400.00 and weld them yourself. Headmans Cumming Ga. shop is the researh shop and they put togetgher the kits that Headman sells, They can be torch welded and it's not differcult to do. From the early 60's thru the mid 70's i welded all my headers with a torch. Being it's a special header (not a common application) everybody is going too try to rip you off, JUST DO IT.

    Hey Zip,
    I did get the part number from Hedman today. I am just not that confident in my welding skills but I might have to just take the chance.

    If you decide to go this route, get the flanges with 2" of pipe already welded on. A much cleaner start.

    If you want something done right and nice it worth the price. Guys that know how to do good work dont usually charge $15 a hour. Good Luck
