    Headlamp covers are easy. Never took mine apart, but I fully understand how they work and it is anything but complicated.

    I'm not in the market for another, so you can buy the next one to show up instead of waiting to inherit mine. I'll own two '87 FWB Hearses, but owning a pair of matching '72 Mark IV's would be ridiculously absurd. People would talk.

    Next up, get some belts (and that one pulley I have sitting there) on that engine and start getting myself a 4L80e and get that all set up.
    If you're handing out stuff, can I have your motorcycle/ doorstop?

    Well, no one has claimed that yet.

    Re: Cadillac 500: It Begins.

    I suppose.

    Also, while I have everyone's attention. (Or Sam's rather)

    Sam, since you are the expert here, which exhaust headers would you suggest? The factory 500/472 ones or does anyone make any aftermarket (I.E. Easier to acquire) ones that would fit?

    Re: Cadillac 500: It Begins.

    If you have a stock cam, I'd go with the stock manifolds unless you want more top end power. If you do headers, I dont know which ones to get. I looked for a good set of headers with no luck. The ones I bought and thought were gonna work didnt and I had to take a hammer to them. Page ten of my "build cadillac 500" thread shows the hammer job I had to do. I havent seen any headers that I think will work without mods.

    Re: Cadillac 500: It Begins.

    ^I do indeed recall this.

    I am in no way above smashing things with a hammer to make them fit. It is a perfectly acceptable means of modification.

    If it doesn't fit, get a bigger hammer!
