Looks like this build is coming along nicely. I bought a set of those coil covers but after reading the instructions I didn't think it was worth all the hassle, so I sold them to the next guy.

For header bolts I used a set of ARP chrome hex head bolts, with washers. So far they have held up nicely and I don't have to worry about them breaking off in the head.

They are insanely labor intensive for what they are. I keep the instruction manual by my bed and I've gone over it a few times now. Looks like a real pain in the ass.

I was looking at the ARP's, they are top option as of right now.

Staycation score. Picked up this lightly used 1LE/convertible strut bar local off FB marketplace. It's a little dirty and sporting a decal that I'm not fond of. Next week I'll clean it up and polish it, I should be able to elbow grease this back to 99% new.

The hardware on the other hand, I may drop those off at a local metal plater. Maybe zinc or polished? We'll see.

Fin. Turned out nicely. I have a feeling these things need re polished every so often. I used some sealant and wax to give the polished area a sacrificial layer before it starts to oxidize and loose the luster.

Stole this BNIB 1LE oil separator off FB marketplace, $30 shipped to me. It's ridiculous that GM asks $220+ for this thing.

The question of the day is: will this work with the SLP coil covers? Just holding the two together, it's tight. The pics in the instructions give me hope. I won't know for sure until I'm already committed to the covers. So much thought and effort for stupid pieces of plastic lol.
