Progress has come to a halt because of all the fires in the surrounding areas here in Northern California. The smoke is friggin thick and is causing my eyes to water and throat to burn. Even with the garage doors shut itís miserable.We desperately could use some rain to stop the fires and clean the air.

One fire, the Dixie fire is over 432,000 acres.

We had the fires here (Australia) 18 months ago, and they were devastating. Locally (South Australia), quite literally half of Kangaroo Island was burnt out. Now its Europe's turn with Greece being hit hard.

So, stay safe, Bill. Everyone else too!

Cheers,
Glen

Finally finished the rear belly pan. Sanded and installed with flush mount rivets. Nine pieces total (3 bottom panels, two upright closures either side behind the tires, and 4 connecting pieces that tie everything together. Front is MoU tinted to the IRS cradle.

Nice work, Bill. I appreciate how much effort went into the sheet metal work

Can you post some details of your exhausts? Pipe diameter, muffler size and brand.... how nice does it sound and how loud is it? Happy with it (exhausts), or any proposed changes?

Cheers mate,
Glen

The exhaust headers were custom made by a local shop. Expensive! He also made the transitions to the mufflers (Jones Exhaust). From there I made the rest myself. Exhaust tubing is 2.5Ē. And itís loud!n

Thanks Bill. I have the headers but nothing else yet for the exhausts.

Cheers,

Painting the inside of the footboxes semi-gloss black like the originals. I should have done this before installing them in the frame.
