    By face, do you mean on the flanges? If so, you could take them to a machine shop and they could sand down the flange so it will sit flush with the heads so they will be less chance of a leak.

    Where did you get them from? If you got them from some company, call them and ask them if you could exchange the ones you got for some new ones. With a 'defective' product, they should give you a new pair for no extra cost.

    I usually have my pics saved on photobucket.com. Right click and copy the URL. Then when you go to post them, look for the icon that a picture of a mountain and the sun. Enter URL there. DONE

    Stainless can have machining defects too, unclean weld spots, and the like. He just got a bad set, I know its frustrating, but you can't judge the quality of a company or its products by one bad experience. My pacesetters were great, with a few minor imperfections, but nothing is perfect. Send them back and I'm sure if you want to try another set that those will be better.
