Well,it's time to make the donuts as they say.You can only practice weld so much,welding on the racy go fast parts is just different.So here we go.......These are the collector pipes with the 2 inch slip fit connectors welded on. I first put together the slip connectors and made tiny filler pieces that go in between the connectors so there was no more gap in the center of the formed 3 1/2 inch transition pipe. Then I fitted each assembly to a pipe and marked them,prepped all the surfaces and tacked them together. The final welding started out a bit slow and then the more I did the more confident and better I got. I'm pretty happy with them overall. The plan is build the tail pipes first and fit the car to them,with tunneling the floor,then build the header pipes to the collector pipes. That's that plan..........anyway............the order could change.
