      20200117_181259.jpg Hanging a bit low but not bolted to the heads real good so will gain another 1" or so.
      3" tubes should sound real good when I get the right mufflers.

              Just type in the name on google and you'll find it. A friend on FABO showed it to me. Bought a quart and last a long time. Not cheap about 60 bucks for a quart but any paint that is good is more than that. Did my intake and heads with it and anything plated never changed the color.

                    Wiring is a time consuming S.O.B., but, peace of mind in NEW wiring is priceless.

                        Well, I bet you're glad you didn't buy a cheap kit, lol. And how far are you from Minneapolis? And as long as I'm asking, how is the plane coming along? Steve

                            We were just in Fargo two weekends ago Sunday, visiting relatives when the blizzard warnings had expired and driving 94 was no fun. Weather would have to be good but I like road trips and 7 hrs isn't bad. I spent some time in Harvey back in 95 doing some training. Sooo.... maybe if the weather's nice. I do like beer.

                                        Most you have to cut the old connectors off and install new ones but has been pretty simple even for me.
                                        My biggest problem is the kit I have has been set up for 69 to 75 I think and it comes with extra plugins for all the cars plus set up for all the extra like electronic speedometer, power windows and seats. Lots of extra wires to tuck up under the dash and all the wires are plenty long enough to do modifications.
