Looking good, I can't believe how quickly you've turned this project around wish we had cars that hardly rusted here in the U.K I'm looking forward to seeing it all finished.

Looks excellent. Nice subtle period colour suits it. Putting it all back together is the best bit!

I've just been refitting my exhaust got the 4th time! This time with paste on the flange...

Re: cont

i was just looking at the exhaust on mine, the o ring flange looks like it will blow easily, think i will paste mine up as well, thxs for reminding me purf , the rubber radiator hoses are a pain, had too make some up, looks like spaghetti junction under there. combine that with all the hoses for the emission control and breathers , omg what were they thinking.

Re: cont

Its nice we don't have the extra emissions stuff over here. But the car does stink a bit compared to moderns. I was thinking today how bad it would be waiting in line at MCDonalds drive through behind my X :-)

If yours is like the us spec I guess you are talking about a slightly different exhaust flange. The euro cars have a twin down pipe?

Mine was a pig as someone has upgraded the studs to m10 and had cracked one of the 4 corners off the manifold flange. I was tempted to get a 4 branch to get rid of this flange entirely but it seems to be ok (cross fingers)
