Since my last entry I've purchased a 12G940 unleaded head from APT in California.. I also ordered intake and exhaust valves, guides, head gasket and lots of other parts for Gidget. I also removed the radio console and strpped it bare. At this time I'm not sure if I'm going to reupholster it or just paint it. I also found another Midget for parts for $150.00.
