I used the Dremel on low speed to cut out the pipes and mufflers. I’m playing around with the Starliner exhaust, as a template, figuring out where it it needs to be cut, and to have some mufflers replaced. Most likely aluminum tube will be the new exhaust.
Im working on the firewall, and mocking up the engine. Using a TBolt intake, I had to drill holes everywhere, for the heat riser tube on the drivers side, the heater hoses, water pump, and upper radiator hose. It gets tight with the oil filler tube, and the fuel rail and fuel line. Still have to figure out where the heater hose will end up on the intake. It won’t be in the correct spot as there isn’t much room.
As far as the black on the engine, it will be Tamiya semi gloss black.
