    Ive been working with the exhaust and several attempts later i desided to go under the axle. Its the easiest way. I tried the side exit also but lots of work and theres risk of fumes getting inside the car and also the noise is one problem, id like this car to be quiet also

    Timo: You're making progress, so your health must be improving?

    If that was the oxygen sensor that you were pointing out on the RH exhaust, then it should be located on the 'upper half' of the tube, and probably angled towards the engine (for the electrical connection). Generally from what I've read, the oxygen sensor should probably be located farther away from the engine than you have it (if you have that option).

    Yes that was the o2 sensor what i was pointing. That is the stock location for those headers so i think ill leave them there. Just gonna rotate the pipe so that the sensor Will fit and electric connector is easy to acces later on.

    I have been on medicine for few weeks and my knee is little better and allows me to continue on the build. Hopefully have the whole exhaust done in this weekend so i can lover the body and make sure nothing binds or hits the floor etc.

    Sorry about the long wait. Ive been busy in the garage and mounted seatbelts, test fitted my heater and raingear wiper system etc. Painted the whole frame.

    Also have my rocket racing wheels with 275 wide tires. They were too tight fit so i removed the whole rear and my friend is gonna narrow it down almost 2" per side.

    I also removed the emergency brake system under the car because im gonna put the handbrake in the center console.

    Trunk is painted in primer already and i have made the bracket to mount the air tanks, compressor etc in the trunk

    Hi Timo,
    Good to hear you are still kicking! Wow, lots of progress!
    So you won't have to mini-tub the rear wheel wells?
    Regards, Doug
