Only watch this when you have sound.

This will cure you're spool issues and let you still run a Holset
(go to like 50s)

My buddy has one of those.

They don't do well on gas engines. Too hot.

Side exit exhaust is out. I decided to save money and do a left exit exhaust. I can add a muffler later if needed. I'll probably use this as the tip for some sort of muffling.

Cheapest **** I could find.

Projectors are ******* awesome. I've been chipping away on them a little bit every night. I need to finish up the wiring, mount them for good, and install the LED strips in the turn signal lenses.


Lexan came in. I might have bought too much, but it was only $30.

My car had a shitty past. Even before I beat on it. Check out the core support.




Headlight lids secured. Bumper needs to go back on, turn signals wired and setup. Still waiting on the HIDs to show up. Almost done. This project took way to fukin long.

Should I get the twin disc clutch flywheels surfaced? Or just wing it. I'm going to just heat them up again soon enough lol.

I kinda want to install it soon.

Hit it with an random orbital sander and rough it up to approximate a machined surface. Break in as per usual.

In a Bronco. They're great if you need to hold the car on a hill in order to grab a gear and depress the clutch. Great for dune buggies too. Not legal (technically) as an emergency brake, as they're supposed to be mechanical.
