    Bought My First Pig

    Gonna have to take a look and see what I need to make this happen. Might end up reaching out for a slave if I cant make the one I have already work. It should be doable, but I've said that before on this truck and here we are.

    Bought My First Pig

    Separated the manifolds and cleaned/painted them. Gonna re use for now. Couldn't find the right studs to replace the boogered up bolts with at the local stores (made an order).

    Bought My First Pig

    Took a crack at cleaning up the manifolds. Got super lucky and came away with no broken bolts or nuts. The long manifold clamping bolt almost got me but enough heat, lube, patience, and impact guns got it. Found some more PO surprises though. Any guesses what these welds are supposed to be...

    Bought My First Pig

    Never have I ever scrubbed a headliner. At least it smells like clean laundry now instead of old funk. Pivot ball, speedo cable, and oil lines came in and installed. Waiting on some other vanity stuff.
