    Classic Daily got the HID kit installed and the front end all put back together. They are running the battery to the trunk because we will be using that room in the front for the coil on plug setup.

    Although I like plastic bumpers, I think the color matched big bumpers and IS valance came out great.

    Jake and Tim at Classic Daily are making a ton of progress on the car this week. We’ve had some upgrades to it to make it more reliable and fun to drive :-)

    Head studs, Coil on Plug, performance timing belt, upgrades oil pump pulley. We may go Water/Meth injection or e85 but we’ll see.

    AC items are back in. Top is nearly completed (liking the charcoal window). Also ordered squared HID retro kit so that’ll be install too.

    Missing the car and with the quarantine I’m thinking I’ll go up to Michigan to get the car in June. Still trying to figure out the planted seat sliders which don’t seem to be correct but have been told it’s what’s used on all of customers cars.

    Started to clean up the tow rig and have a couple mods that are gonna happen also. Need something to work on haha.

    New top is on order. Went with Twillfast dark blue through topsonline. Ended up getting a charcoal rear window vs. the "green". Just in case, I got new tension straps, front and rear bow/header seals. Will totally bring this car so far once the top is brand new. With all the Covid stuff, it'll be a few months before I get her back.

    Right after it left, received this in the mail. Hope it doesn’t have any Rona coming from Belgium.

    She’s loaded up going to Jake at Classic Daily for final tuning and tweaks. Can’t wait for this thing to be done.

    I was honesty worried about the 3.5” tips. I thought they’d be too big but they came out perfectly. I’m really happy with the entire system.

    Exhaust done. Found that the noise coming from
    this thing is a manifold that’s not fully tightened down.

    Love how it came out!

    Got alignment today and it’s first bath and wax since I’ve owned it. Tomorrow is exhaust. It’s such a beaut and needs a new too so badly!

    Replacing the heat shields. There was only one that I couldn’t source new so I found a nice used one.

    I think that's the real problem people have, especially with vbands.
    Good to know, I was considering oval tubing but I'm shying away at the price point. I think I'll just give straight 3" a go.

    I'm not honestly sure. Theres a great local exhaust shop that Ill have an appointment with after I get the brake and driveshaft stuff sorted out. I'd like a fairly quiet exhaust for cruising - thinking a nice resonator back to a muffler that fits/looks stockish. I'll have that cutout before the resonator if it fits.
    Sweet! I'm hoping for a quiet cruiser as well, the cut out will be fun though
