Nice project, and from the pictures seems fairly clean as well! what are the plans for this? are you keeping it all original?

If you take the heads off - use care on the head bolts. They snap off all too easy and you're left with a problem.

It's best to use an air impact wrench on them. It puts torque on all sides evenly. Bolts usually break when the load is off-center.

Good luck and take your time.
