    I spent some time yesterday applying a little body filler on the rear fenders. Today I sprayed them and the bed tubing with some rustoleum prof grade bed liner. I like the way it turned out.

    Apparently Block Hugger headers and urethane engine mounts do not play well together!







    Wrapped the headers where they immediately surround the motor mounts. If the mounts do not melt any further, then I will install new ones.



    Also boxed in the area between the front of the radiator and the back of the side air scoop to keep hot engine compartment air away from the front of the radiator.

    Nice work! That stinks about the mounts. Hopefully that wrap will eliminate the melting for you. The fenders look great!

    I don't think I've seen a mount do that before. Perhaps when you do replace them, you might add in a simple metal heat deflector, to shield the mount.

    It could mount under the same fasteners as the mount??
