    Newbie here, what exhaust is that? I think I saw something like it on an R rep for sale last year. Would like to acquire one

    ITGEEK, those are your RSR type megaphones. Super loud! I'll be running a regular muffler or a sport type.

    It could still be yours Scott but it's going to get more expensive as I go!

    I forgot about this picture before the blasting and stripping. You'll see the torsion bars on the ground. They were rusted to the spring plates. So, a quick cut with a plasma cutter took care of the 23mm bars. Like a hot knife through butter.

    My 70S project is finally going into finish bodywork and will look quite similar.

    I can't remember where I got that pic. I believe it was from this site. I save pictures when I like them for future reference but I have no story on that car.

    Shot some primer on it. We're going back to front as far as the metal repair. Restoration Design panels for the rear is where we'll start.
