Re: Premade BUNDLE OF SNAKES?

Hi Vinax, the header sets are made to fit with the engine and transaxle you are planning to use. I know Race Car Replicas offers sets to fit with ZF, Audi, and Ricardo tranaxles.

Re: superformance gt 40 head light and side window gaskets

I've not used it, but an idea would be closed-cell foam tape such as from 3M. I know it comes in different widths and thicknesses and should be a decent sealing material.
