    Original plan was just to get my new HP manifolds welded up. Now that turned into getting new tips installed. Showed them pics of what I want. Will see what they can do. May get some series 40s installed. They have some used ones . Figured used is ok since there's no packing in them. Owner said guys are always swapping out mufflers for sound. So he has alot of used flowmasters.

    On the lift. all family owned shop, which I like.

    Not final position, but I like the shape.

    Sounds the same. Looks like old Walkers were on there. Maybe louder than these Series 40s. Hard to get good sound clip. I do like the shape. Guys took alot of time measuring and asking if I like shape location etc before final welds. They dont stick past rear lower valance. Dump just behind it.

    Some chrome trim is missing, it's at the chrome shop now.
