Boy does that bring back old memories!Yes, that is what also bothered me was the poor welding.
Fitment issues and header flanges that are not flat are
issues that began back in the 1960's when prefabricated
headers first became available.
Some of those early prefabricated headers were very
crude to say the least.
Before that you had to bring your car down to a header
shop so they could custom build the headers for your car.
That's how the legendary 'Jungle Jim Lieberman' began.
He used to build headers out of a business called 'Babes Mufflers'
in San Jose CA back in the mid 1960's.
Jim for exhaust, Johnny DeLong for custom ground bump sticks, Bob at Gromm Racing for head work and Reggie (off Race St?) for any machine work.
Thanks for a trip to the past Mr. Duck!
