sounds reasonable enough. I would rather buy suit case weights. making weights is a lot of time. I bought most of my weights for .75cents per pound. Are you gonna mess with your new c or leave it stock.

It's going to stay stock for now. At most it would get resleeved up to the 3 1/8 sleeves and pistons to be where most C's are. It'll pull 3500# and 4500# class. If it doesnt lose power I'll just keep the 3" flat top pistons in. It is in great condition, rebuilt some time in the past as there is no ridge on the top of the sleeves.

I dont have to do much to make these usable weights. I cut little hangars shaped as an L and weld them on. Thats it. I might make handles on them but total welding time is about 2 minutes per weight.

An example of one plate is 1.5" thick x 12"x12".
