    Coat it with copper coat gasket dressing or aluminum spray paint and you should be good to go.
    Copper coat is better. If you go the spray paint rout, let the paint dry thoroughly before assembling.

    the coke can trick for the head gaskets good, and increases compression some :)

    i prefer straight copper sheet, annealed every use. (heat red hot, cool. makes it soft n squishy again)

    available from all good scrap yards or...sheet metal places :) who will give it to you usually... within reason.
