    Thanks alot. I did the exhaust on my v8 miata on a creeper and that was a really tough one, no room for anything on that car. I got a sore on my tailbone from getting up and down so many times.

    I'm going to be doing the exhaust on my 40 on a creeper too. I'm half considering going under the axle instead of over since the thing is so low now. I haven't gotten there yet. Have to get a brake pedal on first.

    Creeper work does get old, but your doing a phenomenal job on everything I've been seeing.

    I've got the exhaust hanging on it's own now. I was able to use one of the explorer hangers. This is as far as I'm going now because I need to build my bed to find out where the exhaust will need to exit in back. So next the cab is going back on.

    More very nice work. Looks like you got the hard part done....but you never know until the last hanger is tightened and you're happy with it.


    ".....Thanks alot. I did the exhaust on my v8 miata on a creeper and that was a really tough one....."

    I think the worst one for me was the SBC in the little Ram 50. Getting the pipes and mufflers down the passenger side was bad enough......but I just had to hang a second fuel tank between the frame rails behind the rear axle. That pipe going back over to the drivers side got real interesting

    Thanks Mike. I kind of enjoy the exhaust work when there is this much access. Now I want to start it up and see what it sounds like, but that will take some work.

    Very nice work. I've got to make or source some hangers for the 40 next. Mine won't look as pretty as yours.

    Your really making progress, I think it took 15 years for me to get where you are now.

    Thanks, it's been about 3 1/2 years since I started. Not in any hurry to finish, enjoying the journey.

    Yes on wire wheels being dangerous! I've caught my pants legs on them before. Surprising too! Also, the pieces of wire fly off of them Be sure to wear a face shield. perley

    I was were brushing a part clamped in my vice and it caught my shirt and pulled the grinder out of my hands, it gave me an abrasion that looked like a piece of bacon on my chest. I felt very lucky it wasn't worse. Next time will definitely buy a grinder with the dead man type switch.

    Those wire wheels are no good when they get near your skin!

    I made up a fuel line with chevy and ford quick connects. Now have a complete fuel system, ready for gas!

    Also mounted up the explorer master and booster and bled the system and now have a firm pedal with actual working brakes! I totally struggled with the bleeding, spilled and sprayed fluid everywhere, lots of cussing. I've never had such a hard time bleeding brakes. Had to do a lot of dicking around with my diy power bleeder to make it work with the master cylinder too. Anyway, it's cleaned up and working so some progress was made.

    Got my wipers working today, seem ok but noisy. I will have to do more fiddling to see if I can make them any quieter. This was a Autoloc setup from amazon, it was quite a bit of work to install. The tubing is the really hard part, I got some nicopp brake tubing that bent really nice after I filled it with sand, crimped the ends and bent it around a plastic bucket, then flared the ends to fit in the brackets. Theres a steel cable with a spring steel coil around and the cable slides back and forth in the tubing to move the gears for the wipers.20180608_181615.jpg
