Hood looks way better than most just shiny but you cannot get the correct paint today either.

i would check the internals of the procomp heads! If they have procomp springs, guides, and valves you can kiss that motor goodbye in a very short period of time.

You have any experience with them?

Absolutely. Just do a quick search on google about ANYTHING Procomp. Its mostly Chinese knock off junk. I wouldn't run any of their stuff in my car. But i have heard of people having decent luck with their bare aluminum heads and putting in quality valvetrain components. I guess the castings are decent but the parts they put in them are absolute junk. Even the guides have a tendency to wear prematurely or break and fail.
