Test Fit

I got a little free time to test fit my new catback last night. It’s a little bit off center, so I need to take it back off and move the hangers a little bit to make sure it mounts up straight in the opening between the rear valences. I think it should look really cool when it is mounted correctly though:

I also got the front hubs and brakes back on the car. Temporary spacers come for the front tomorrow, so that will allow me to put the car on the ground. I probably won’t do that until I finish the brakes, though. I ordered the fittings and tubing I need to make my own lines today, so hopefully that will go down next week.

I decided to try to run -AN fittings and braided hoses for the vacuum line that runs from the brake booster to the intake manifold. I ordered a fitting for the booster, so I will have my buddy Mike weld that on before the booster is painted next week. Should be pretty cool hopefully! Stay tuned and hopefully I will make some progress. Would really love to have this thing on the road by the end of the month!

    looking good!!!
    im planning on doing the same thing with the booster.
    what will you be doing for the plastic piece that blocks the vacuum back to the manifold?

    • I’m not totally sure about that yet. I was thinking about just using those -AN looking dress up clamps to hold the check valve and tuck it behind the valve cover.
