Looks good! :thumbsup:

I started mine this week. I have everything cut to size. Today I'll finish tacking and remove to weld it up!

I didn't realize how off center these cars are. Of coarse the engine sits in there off center and crooked. One header is longer than the other and the tunnel is two inches off center in the car.

Super nice fabrication. Are the tubes from Pipes? I used SS bands instead of conventional muffler style clamps in some areas and I can dismantle the system in minutes. I would have preferred welded flanges with pinch clamps but I couldn't find them in the time frame I had.
Be a good time to weld in a bung for an O2 sensor for future upgrades.

Yeah I looked at putting them in but my budget didn't allow it with the shipping from US as you can't get them here in Ireland. Would have lovely to hear it really roar.
Thankfully the Garda here do not mind the illegal plate once it has my Irish reg on it as it's not a daily driver.
