Is your frame notched? My axle hits the frame before the diff hits the bed, maybe the year difference changes that or something.

Im not going to do a rattle can job on my truck. Im going to see about getting some paint that closely matches the factory orange colour to paint it. Ive got a cheap little spray gun that should work. It should be painted in a few weeks.

well you can buy rustolem paint in a can for a spray gun. i just did the rattle can cuz it was a damn near match and it was just the frontend that needed painted.

well i got bored today and figured i take a couple new pics of the 620. it dirty as hell cuz its been rainin here, and frankly... i havnt washed it since it was still 70 outside. lol

oh yeah, dont mind the oddball wheel ive got on it. i had a blowout the other night. my u bolts are too close to the tires with all the drop it got, so the sidewall doesnt exist anymore one that tire. gotta trim the ubolts one of these days before i shred another tire.

You were right, i went to wal-mart and they have the spray paint. The colour on the cap looks way off, so im going to get a can and test it. Might prime a big spot on the shop wall and test a few colours to see what i want.

yeah it doesnt quite look the color the lid is. but the whole frontend on my 620 is painted with it. i was pretty surprised to see ho well it matched the stock paint.

okay! so the exhaust manifold is on! but it was a pain in my ass. i had to grind a groove in it when it came in contact with the intake. i also had to grind an edge off the intake in the same spot. not too fun.

but anyways, everything is all sealed up on the motor. no vacuum leaks or exhaust leaks.

i didnt have time tonite to finish the entire exhaust system though. i did manage to reuse most of my old exhaust, and some camaro exhaust also. ive got a pipe all the way back to the carrier bearing crossmember. im gonna finish it up tomorrow with the chambered muffler.

i do have some bad news though. the header didnt make it out alive... its now in maybe 6 pieces... you have to either pull the torsion bar or pull the motor to get it out, so it met its end by the sawzall. :thumbdown:

anyways, i did manage to get a few pics tonite.
here ya go...

heres where the header was broke. the #1 primary right off the head.

Why did you have to grind the manifold? They are designed to fit together...

i dont know why i had to either? i figured that it would just work out. i think the manifold is from an L16, but im not sure.
