20V Blacktop Project - Day 26
Decided to put off the timing belt until I receive the new one,
which should be here Monday. So, friend came over and we welded
up the exhaust.
The Trueno downpipe worked fine. Don't ask me why I never tried it before...I
suck. So, welded the flange back onto it. Now, there's no need to use a
flexpipe, since the Trueno has one built into the downpipe.
Next welded the cat and muffler to the 180* bend. Then we laid everything
up with axle stands, marked and cut everything to size. Then tack welded
the joints, including the 3 hangers using the stock holders.
My friend then seam welded everything. He's got a cheapo wire feed MIG
so there was lots of spatter. We covered the muffler and cat with a wet
towel to keep it off of them. I'm not going to use the tip that I have,
it was too big anyhow. I'll find another one later.
