The build looks great man, I'm jealous you're able to leave the car on jack stands and weld away. What welder are you using?

Past few days ive done a few things. Although im still not even close to finishing. The intercooler sat too close to the radiator so i ended up putting some spacers to offset it.

Next i put some foam weatherstripping to keep that airflow going through the radiator.

Tonight i started out with a couple of beers and decided to work on my exhaust since my suspension is on hold awaiting parts.

I started working the bellmouth piece and started to bring it into a circle over 3 pieces

I drew a perfect weener without even knowing it. Lame.

I made the same mistake. You are trying to do a bellmouth downpipe with the wrong flange. I also went down the same road you are before giving up and getting the right flange. Weirtech sells it.



Its pretty hilarious that you subconsciously drew a *****. Brilliant.

With all the weiner fiasco happening in this thread i thought i would get some **** done today for sure.

Started off with getting the IWG hold fabbed up and then welded the whole thing

Figured out that before i continue the exhaust that i need to put my rear axles/control arms in first

For the school probably not. Once i get the car together with the aftermarket rods in then i will most likely do SS brake and clutch lines.

Great build thread SKMetalworks. I've really enjoyed reading it. You've got some mad skillz yo with the welder! I just learned (failed?) MIG 12/2008 and am amazed at the tube welding you're doing.
