Here are .030 over JEs say 88cc dome volume I think, but check with seller!! Ask what the compression is with them. They're for 3.75" stroke. https://www.ebay.com/itm/373248760970?epid=1217838225&hash=item56e75c1c8a:g:TjAAAOSwQ9BgX8tm

I have already contacted the seller, He doesn't have the parts in stock. He pretty much just takes your order and gets the parts from JE. Notice the shipping time, April 28th to Nov 9th. He can't guarantee a shipping date because it depends on JE to fill the order first.

Take the time to call the piston vendor direct. They may have what you need. Sometimes the in between men have to have a minimal order for their discounts. So that can mean a long wait time. Sometimes the vendor may have some other options already on the shelf.

Some updates: Still waiting on the engine. Delays on pistons and head bolts.
But I have been working on the car. I had to replace 3 panels on the car.
Right side inner fender panel, and both rear footwells/ floorboards. ( AMD Sheetmetal)
I stripped everything from the engine compartment, sandblasted the engine comp, and primed and painted it. I've been waiting on parts to come in for the interior and engine. I ordered all new fuel lines, brake lines, and brake cables (Inline Tubes). new carpet, door panels (Legendary Auto Interiors) New seat belts ( Seat Belts Plus)
And a lot of other miscellaneous orders from Mancini, Classic Ind, Detroit Muscle, and Just Mopar. I also dropped the front suspension getting ready for a complete rebuild and had the K member, Lower control arms, torsion bars, sway bar, strut rods, and center link all powder coated. I also put the stiffening plates on the lower control arms. and installed sound deadener on the floors and doors. I know the new paint is not going to be a dead match but it is supposed to be the correct color code match.
I got a replacement hood because the original hood had holes cut in it and was rusted beyond repair at the hinges.

The lighting is different from the first pictures to the second group of pictures. Inside to outside in the direct sun. The paint is from the same batch of paint.
single stage.

My plan on the hood is to paint the underside the color of the engine comp. and paint the outside of the hood a Matte Black. There is no way I can get the paint to match close enough to look presentable. I just hope the Matte Black doesn't look goofy. I just put my order in with Glen Ray on a radiator.
