    Yes, thanks John, have tried them. As I found noone I bought the neck which is attached to the thermostat from Gto and started building my own pipe.

    Greg Jones out of Florida makes the correct waterpipe.

    Build one myself. I know it is not the prettiest but tested to 3 bar. Will have it nickel plated and then paint it wrinkle finish.

    Hello turbo-joe,

    after getting the info about the wrinkle finish on this from Tom Yang I tried to narrow info down. I saw a lot of cars both ways, wrinkle and silver, meaning nickel or painted.
    Still looking for final confirmation. Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Christopher

    Pretty sure these manifolds got painted after about 1960. You see more nickel prior to that.
