    All three kits share a common chassis and most engine parts. The headers can look and fit better with a little help. Glue them together at the collector and allow to dry. Then bend the headers at the ports to align them. Then with a sanding stick sand the headers until the all are even....try and keep the angle the same as what is molded in. Cut a flange from .010 x .100 strip. This makes the headers look better and gives more surface to attach to the block.

    The Mercury rear firewall was left box stock and glued to the locators in the rear wheel wells. You can see here how the Mercury chassis halfs are butt joined. I sanded each a little until the correct wheelbase was reached and then some scrap plastic was added to reinforce.
