Do you plan on doing some of this work yourself? If not this could get costly pretty quick haha. Either way it will be a cool car in the end! O and are those a list of the codes you have currently with the car?
And I think you forgot valve seals for your head rebuild, wouldn't want to forget those while you got it all apart.

Thanks, I decided to clean up the list. But yes, I plan to do EVERYTHING myself(and with friends). I know it will be costly, but I'm planning on working on this for my whole life, hence the title.

The codes are a little old, they were just in a note somewhere so I don't know if they all still apply, but generally, yes, those are the codes.
Thanks, I'll remember seals for when I finally get to my rebuild.

Will have try to put up pics after this semester. So, the start of summer 2015.
