LMAO. I’m looking at all the hoses under the hood....
While waiting for a quote from Swagelok NW I took the part numbers to EBay and bought all of them I needed in stainless steel plus an extra for $1 more than their list price for carbon steel, $119.78 and they are all guaranteed delivery by next Monday. Those were some great deals. I guess I’ll do them in stainless after all.
Trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear as my gramps would say. I’m getting a bit better at bodywork though. The cluster bezel has been a challenge.
I have a chance to buy a set of polished silver ceramic coated Kooks longtubes with catless Y pipe for $1050 shipped and I’m having a hard time saying no. These are normally $1800 plus shipping without the coating and I’d guess would be well over $2000 if I was to order them. They’re brand new. Help me decide fellas. I do have to take a look to see if I have room under my truck, I haven’t really checked to see what they did to make the exhaust work. I mean, they used a different oil pan because the stock one hung down too far so there’s that to consider. Damn that’s cheap though.
I say go for it!! And if you can’t use them, sell them.

worth getting at that price & modifying if you have to
Good stuff dude!
The Wilwoods showed up. A UPS rep stopped by first and said a box of Roundup had spilled all over the truck and asked if I wanted to send them back or accept them with a some of it on the boxes. Duh. Not scared of Roundup. Also got a bit closer on the bezel, I just have to finish wet sanding and then paint it. I’m going to a local place tomorrow to have new center rear brake hoses made. The OEM ones are rubber and when I’m fully aired up they’re tight so I’ll make them longer and in black braided SS.
Coming together so nicely. Wish I had the time/patience/knowledge to do mine by myself.
