Hello can anybody recommend someone to restore a set of 55' pan heads with a couple of fins missing back to stock condition? Thanks for any help

Fin replacement with authentic texturing is easy, although not cheap. ( A '55 just landed on my benches today!)

But! The critical question about "restoring" a set of heads is: "What other worms are in the can?"

Those concerns determine where you should send the hardware.

Thanks Cotton these heads need complete rebuilding they have been run hard and sitting awhile but they are complete. I'm sure it ain't gonna be cheap but I wanna send them to somebody that is good. I just need someone to steer me in that direction. Also could you hook me up with your address to mail you a m-74 to be gone through? I have one of your floats that I purchased a while back that I will send also. Thanks for your help

Please post me off-forum at for my headwork recommendations.
(If you can take clear close-up ("macro') pics it would be great.)
