Hello

This pic wierds my brain out.  To the right of the motor, the car is clearly a different color than the engine, but to the left the car looks identical in color.

 

Sweet new engine Tanker.

It's the light. Inside is probably florescent the back is daylight through the open door. All color is dependent on the light source.

You are correct, the door was the only rust and i had it all repaired, my fault on off color.

This troy Amish header is a bitch to get in. You have to [ull all the steering out to install, never again. And then I fucked up by having the o2 sensor bung in wrong place. Easy fix but shit man.

Wow what a fuckin headache that header was, but all fixed now, relocated the Bung hole yes I said it. And got it in Literally. Manifold was just mocked up. Just got some bullshit things to do, like vacuum balance tube for the ITB's, New throttle cable mount, hmmmm and I need to machine the inside of that super whammer jammer thermostat housing as it does not have one. How ever I found a 180 degree Chevy sprint one that will work, just need to machine the inside hole just a little to make flush, and whoa-la its in like Flynn. Not perfect but should scoot a little and man that Kameari chain tensioner will be a ear sore, maybe.

 

Disclaimer that valve cover is just for looks, My old bright red one is going back in just having the powder job re done.Helps hide the ugliness of this wagon.

That header DOES look like a pain in the ass to get in there.

 

It looks good from my house!

I’m sure the rack and pinion setup would solve that clearance issue right on up. Haha

Isn’t it odd that better looking boots don’t exist?  You picked same as me, but I thought there should be better.

Why does everything look so dry? No oil or assembly line on anything?
