exhaust hanger broke again from pipe getting pushed up and scraping going over speed bumps from shitty exhaust work. cleaned it up as best as i could. don't judge. lol

welded up and painted. welding is hard overhead and in tight corners. haha

Decided to kill the can of paint and give the whole crappy exhaust a coat.

All done for now

Waiting on correct tires cause they shipped me the wrong ones last week.  :angry:  Hopefully they get here in time for me to mount them.

Get a KOYO its worth it. Put that on te lift and you can half of that pounded out in a few hours. 

 

I thought about that. But I decided to go with a more classic look.

 

so I'm going to put in my 510's old radiator with the polished brass top.
