    Completed Mockup headers

    here are the headers tacked up and pretty darn close! We will likely add some tube length to move the collectors a few inches back. The plan is to enquire about a nice set of fancy shiney Headers from a custom header place. Here are patterns. We wilol weld these up for another project.

    Installed Fire Wall Views

    Fire Wall Prep And the Sectioned Area:
    Section A was cut out of the firewall. Section B was moved over to where section A was because it had an indentation to it that matched the rest of the firewall. This section was moved over to make panel C come all the way over to the inner fender panel. This makes the firewall more "symmetrical". It would look odd to me if this step wasn't performed. Study the pics with the inner fenders in place for a better understanding

    Cabin Floor Pans

    The floor pans still need more fitting and trimming before they get welded in place, but you get the idea of how they look and are fitting so far.
