ahh after speaking to a mate he reckons the headbolts strech soo going to have to replace them

I have reused the headbolts in mine, no dramas. i guess it's up to you, but you do risk snapping them when reusing them.

Hi There

Its your call, but with the alloy head, you really should have it
machined ( re - surfaced ) as a bare minimum.

Or at least get a long accurate straight edge and feeler gauges
and check the surface is dead even.
