    Shame the "exhaust guys" hacked it up like they did, but it is all better now and you're ready for some progress I'll bet. 8-)

    there was already a notch by a previous owner there to clear an old exhaust system, the muffler guy just added to it! In a big way!
    Anyway it is good I did this because I also found a exhaust manifold gasket under the headers which I specifically didn't install because Sanderson's is quite specific about this is their instructions instead you are suppose to install the header with a 1/8"-1/4" bead of black RTV silicone. I looked on the drivers side and yup no gasket, so I'm guessing when Kelley chopped the frame he must of had to take header off and then just automatically put a gasket on not knowing sanderson's thing. So after cleaning off both surfaces I got a new bead of rtv on and let it set 24 hours per instructions, which allowed me to paint por-15 over the exposed metal on the frame.Also time to remember I need to add washers or spacers to the engine mounts to get read of the free space between the sides of the mount where the thru bolt goes. I also decided to make a build binder with all the loose papers, amd part numbers for anything not stock for reference down the line vs. loose piles everywhere!

    Yep, keeping track of all those random part numbers is an excellent idea. It saves hours of time and aggravation down the road.

    I'm sure it feels good to have that fixed! Does sanderson say to use a high temp gasket maker? Or maybe a copper based one?

    High temp which they have rebranded to Ultra Black maximum oil resistance same part number 82180. Turns out all silicone has the same heat range according to my welder, he says they use high heat to increase price, but all is the same, maybe thats why permatex took that name off. I spent quite a bit of time researching this! Everywhere that sells Ultra Black now if they have new stock, it doesn't say high heat. Pretty confusing!

    Quick up date after reinstalling the header, I found there was no way to tighten the lower connect flange bolt to the back of the header, now that the weld patch is in place without triming some overlaping excess metal (not structural) just sticking out past the new boxed in patch. So off with the header again(Sounds like Alice in Wonderland!) I need to crawl under the truck today to see if this will work before any metal trimming takes place. Right now there is no clearance for getting a good bight on the nut or bolt! I can also put a new gasket in while I'm at it! Measure once cut a million times, whoops thats measure twice cut once

    If you only need a CH... um.. a little hair of room a BFH, that's a Big F_ _ _'n Hammer can sometimes sneak out just enough space to get the socket or wrench onto the fastener.

    But you knew that already, didn't you?

    Well once again it's been awhile since I've been updating this thread. Recently I was able to trim just enough metal from my frame patch to finally access the lower header collector bolt that was no longer accessible after the frame welding last year. This was a tedious project due to only being able to get a small hand wrench on either the nut or bolt and turning it less than one 1/16 of a turn at a time. But after about an hour I was able to get the lose nut off and trim some non structural metal back enough to be able to tighten this connection and add some high temp black silicone gasget material for added insurance against leaks. With the header back on for the last time, I now will be able to start bolting all of the front inner panels, fender supports, running boards, front hood and grill assemblies etc...! I keep the engine alive, starting it and running it every few months. so that is not a problem. I have been finishing up endless other projects, and want to start on organizing and cleaning up my garage so I can actually find stuff again. 3.5 years after my divorce and rapid move into this place, which left no time to organize, I want to get back at it. Lastly I am downsizing my collective junk, which should pay roll project stuff like the truck.
    The hardest thing is posting pics, due to photobucket, wanting money, 10 years after providing a free storage site, to the tune of $6.99 a month. Will have to think about that one and search for alternatives!

    Good to hear you're back at it. I feel your pain on PB. I need to take my pics off there but I have no time to be jacking with it. Haha
