I can slowly start deleting things off my list. Window net is installed. Louvres are almost done.

Looks a lot better

Those look huge. Did you stick to the originally planned size? Nice work BTW.

A little late to the party but, the car does look a lot better with the louvers instead of a blank panel.

Dang, that looks like a lot of work building the headers. They look great, even unfinished!

I was surprised how easy it was to build the headers. Lots of time cutting and grinding to get the figment nice and tight.

Nice use of the Jenga game to hold your car up.
I’ve had these since 2008. Work awesome and super cheap!

Most of the parts are here for the 9”. Waiting for the housing and axle tubes to show up from Competion Engineering.
Need that to measure and order up axles.

I can start to see the light with the headers. All the pipe is welded. Just have weld the collectors on. Send them out to get ceramic coated hopefully in a week or so

3 things that I wanted to be able to have or do when I designed the headers.
#1 easy assess to the header bolts
#2 no burning the spark plug boots
#3 be able to take headers off with engine in car.
I was able to do all 3. My old headers and and even the TTI’s I’ve had in the past on my R/T were a pain to get the bolts in.

I’m really happy with how they turned out for the first time doing anything like this.
