Since the tailpipes on the Magnaflow system we installed weren’t visible at all, I decided to extended them.
This is what it looked like before they were extended.
We took two 90 degree mandrel bent 2,5″ tubes which we cut up in half, flipped them and welded together.
By that we had two 45 degree tubes that would fit perfectly.
This is the end result, much better than before!
The last weeks have been busy, especially for daddy-o who’s been doing a great job altering and fitting the headers and the new twin-exhaust!
I’ve been helping out with whatever I’ve been able to help out with but by now I guess you all understand that without him, the car would be pretty much in the same state as I bought it in 🙂
So after seven long months of hibernation, the time had finally come. All nuts and bolts were fastened, there was gas in the tank and the fire extinguisher was there (just in case)..
When removing the back seat in order to be able to mount the hangers for the exhaust we found tiny bits of surface rust. Nothing to worry about really but just to make sure it won’t come back, I sanded everything down…
And applied two layers of rust encapsulator.
Hopefully in a week or two, she’ll be back on the road 🙂
While me and my wife went to NY for a week, daddy-o made some amazing(!!) stuff with the car.
First, he has managed to paint the remaining parts of the undercarriage and it looks great!
Second, he has installed the headers from Patriot.
Third, he has re-installed the tank, filler neck and everything else around there.
Fourth, the new Monroe hijackers are in place!
As all of the above wasn’t enough, he’s also mocked up the Magnaflow twin exhaust!
Setting up the exhaust is pretty much the last thing that needs to be done before we’ll be able to put her back on the road. Can’t wait!!
The long awaited Magnalow box from Dalhems finally arrived! I hope the 15851 exhaust system will make some bad ass noise!
Now I want spring even more!
The stock exhaust sounds kinda wimpy, so I’ve decided to get this mean sounding system from Magnaflow.
Will it sound mean enough?
