Firing it up.
built and ran for 22 yrs.
got any pics with the clip on it and hood open? i'd like to see how the headers are working with the hood hinges.
I got a long ways to go but its taking shape
i'll see if I can find those pics, but I built the headers from scratch so it probably won't help you. also I didn't use inner fenders.
Since your on the subject of exhaust my
project today was exhaust...The torsion bars make the exhaust a challenge.
nice exhaust, but i am old school and like true dual exhaust. seems to sound better to me.
I agree but the torsion keys limit my choices on the front suspension. To low to go under them so I chose to go between them. I never fooled with an "X" member style exhaust with the 40 series flowmasters it might be to loud.
A few of mine in the last months:
Kick A$$ Cow hide with seat heaters rock in the winter!
Couldn't drive it for a couple weeks
Newfisher, I like the wheels done white, balances out the white top.
mine before and after,still more to come
Nice stance and the door art design is "killer" Looks good!
Recent pics of mine.
endless that is a nicely detailed engine. nice job
Here's my 66...tried uploading pictures and keeps failing. Anyhow..I'll do better...here's a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkYh2IzgxKo
I'm new to this but here's my never ending project...first pic is what it started out as...
Posted using the Full Custom H.A.M.B. App!
Thank you! Chip Quinn ("need louvers" here on the HAMB) did that work. The detail is amazing. There are a few really excellent hot rod guys here in Phoenix and he is one of the best.
Thanks for the compliment, Grant!
little bit 'o wax and she shines right up.
My '62 and new bumpers !
So whatta ya doin' for headlights?
Mr. endless and Mr. louvers, that engine and bay are way beyond nice! In my opinion y'all just scored a 3 pointer. The air cleaner has really sparked my curiousity. May I ask what you started with?
Chip modified the stock air cleaner by cutting off the nozzle (for lack of a better word) and then grafting on the nozzle from a second air cleaner.
They are behind the grille
Yeah, got that, but did you cut holes through the core support and mount the headlights behind the core support?
Post up some photos..
I cut the hole support off and it's all sheetmetal behind.
Headlight bases are from the old grille and welded in.
Don't have any good pics of that..
maybe this will tell you something.
Protrash on 67-72chevytrucks did that on his. He has it documented well.
