Not 3 passes on the same cut... put 4 pieces of drop together. Filling gaps is tough, going to get some filler rod before I go full bore on the tube in the Jeep.

Lookin’ good! I remember a guy telling me about using filler rod for big gaps years ago. A great idea!

Got all but 1 piece of the exhaust welded yesterday. Went pretty well. Some more practice would help as always and I was fighting the light in the garage/shade on my lens and couldn’t see very well. Not all the welds were as straight as I would like.

Exhaust is in. Needs 1 more clamp to take stress off header, but it’s in and not going to catch anything on fire.

After the exhaust, I got all the wiring attached, fuel line on, changed the oil/filter, filled p/s, torqued intake manifold, checked p/s pressure line, adjusted CPS on the damper, hooked up heater hoses, tied the under hood lamps out of the way, strung the fan belt... don’t have any coolant. So maybe it’ll fire tomorrow...
