Finally got my nose panel painted, with the bar too.
Got some new wheels. Might aswell while I'm there, plus some tyres.
Got it cleaned. Drove it for a short distance for the first time in years!. Felt ok. Power steering was leaking which I will need to address. Wheels fit great.
Started mocking the exhaust up.
Have some trick downpipes from @rob260 and his old system which I am modifying.
Lining up the mid pipe. Stock jack works great lol.
Rear section to centre. Stock driveshaft heat shield is going in the bin.
Lining up the tips. (Work in progress)
Knocking out the vbands. Don't have much experience TIG welding so pretty happy on these vbands.
Not much left to do.
Need to run some wiring for my AFR to the link , finish the exhaust, fiddle with the alignment and chuck the interior back in.
Oh and fix my power steering link.
Plus run a dual intake.
Looking great out in the natural light, wheels suit it awesome too.
Wasn't happy with the ground clearance of the exhaust, and the tips. So hacking it up I go.
First mission was the dumps to the x pipe. Interesting first project for welding, especially on jack stands.
9/10 happy with result. Fitment of my pie cuts wasn't exactly perfect, but hey first time.
Welding it all together.
I think I have come back on my power goals slightly, so 3 inch is a bit overkill.
Finished the exhaust.
Wasn't too happy with the rear section so made some changes.
Mocking it up:
Also repainted the diff and did the diff bushes at some point.
Right side transition.
All welded together! Bent some hangers from some stainless. Middle muffler is slightly crooked but you can not see from outside.
