DAY 1 well had the day off work today first good weather we've had in 3 weeks.... so what better way to put it to use...then to work on my car! so i got up early! and went shopping.... this didnt go as planned as i originally wanted to buy stainless steel for my pipe work, this worked out far too expensive... went to a few other places, and they couldnt do any better... then i got referred to a place where they make the bends... no luck at first as they only did huge orders! Bugga! and at that i wouldnt even save that much if i was added to someone elses order... then the guy says we have some 3" alloy imperfects we can do you cheap, pick what you want.... so i went home with this lot... for $200nz (less than half what i would have paid for the stainless perfects) all 3", and 3mm thick!! and one 2.5" to 3" Stainless enlarger. then i proceeded to strip the car of its front end and original pipes. the new 600x300x76mm bar/plate cooler was fitted.. then i wanted to fit the original impact beam... no luck! cooler was in the way.... so it got trimmed to fit (impact beam) i'll get a new section welded in later.... by this stage my dad had taken the original Y turbo joiner over to his friends work to get the 2.5" to 3" enlarger welded on this was quickly fitted by me... followed by the impact beam... then i looked at my pile of pipes, hummed and harr'd.... cut and placed pieces together... at this stage i stood back and looked at the huge gap on the otherside... dammit bugger it... its been 8 hours now.... i give up for the day, LOL!
