      Haven't updated this in a while,
      First off after a long search i finally found a carb manifold for the 8v, really stoked on that

      Got a harness and a new alt set up,


      A bunch of other parts too, just littering my room.

      Did wheel bearings, cleaned up the coil-overs and put the breaks on



      Cleaned and painted rear beam, drums, and C-arms



      Had Cole (bajacole) disassemble the doors



      Took a trip to industrial metal supply, picked up some 3/16 steel


      For this


      Done-ish


      Still have to do the drain plug

      Took off the undercoating out of the inner fenders to prep for a patch


      Found a bad spot and fixed it,




      Accidentally pulled up the passenger sound deadening in one piece found this underneath...


      Cleaned it up and found out its not as bad as it looks, still bad enough for me to get a pan though, even just to cut a patch out of.


      Decided to take up the rest of it just to make sure this was the worst of it. Got the drivers side off and its looking promising. Don't want to get my hopes up though...



      Thanks for reading

      I was going to wait till the whole rack was done, but fresh chrome is way too nice not to show off




      That is all

      That's awesome! What size piping is that? Think I want to set mine up like that!

      Well it looks like an actual pre-manufactured tip but obviously you could make it out of pipe.

      It has ~2.5" inlet, it is 3" exit, and 16" long
