#1517320 I know a wagon chick that bought a 521. Lol

I guess I'm late to the party. Sweet truck! That color is the best color for 521's. I am a bit biased tho. lol. I have the engine bay bulb too. just clean the contacts, get a new bulb and it will turn on when you turn on the headlight switch to the parking lights on. not the brightest, but if you're stuck somewhere in the dark it's better than nothing. Great work so far.

New pipe. Per busts nut's suggestion, I cut half of the expanded end off to use it on the other end to have a better seal.

welding it up

Not the prettiest welds, but they'll do their job and I have a quiet exhaust again. Welding on a rack, upside down is really really hard. lol. Hence the bird shit welds. Eventually I'd like to redo the whole exhaust, but the truck will have to wait till I do the 510 first. All in all im happy with the results and I can drive the truck again.

It's installed but I have to put the lower bracket on still. Been focusing on getting the 510 ready.

That must've been a seriously noisy failure. The type that will make you have to change your undies?

haha, yea. the truck shuffled a bit for a second. 

 

Appears to be the pavement side

 haha, thanks. i just wish i knew what the cause was.

Maybe you should re-look into the shims you put in, maybe your angles were good without them if you went as long as you said without an issue.


Yea that's what I was thinking. I'm getting the 510 prepped so I'll have to put off the 521 till after canby.

Thanks for all your help everyone!

I will put another one piece back if I can find another 520 one. . Custom might be more than I want to spend. For now I have the 2 piece back in minus the lower carrier bearing bracket just to be able to move then truck around. I'll deal with it after canby.
