Pretty nice good-enough solution.
So I did another air cleaner mock up to fit my crank case vent tube. I had to bend the crank case vent tube a little and cut out a 1/4" and weld it back together so it would line up evenly to the air cleaner.
Nice job on both the taillights and the air cleaner. Keep up the good work and updates.
Looks great, the tail light fix will get you buy while you search for replacements.
I like the tail light fix, very creative and in my opinion it looks really good and definitely better then having a big chip in the lens
I like the taillamp fix, might be a good addition to leave on.
Damn, I put some silly putty on my air cleaner lid and shut the hood. I maybe have a 1/16" of clearance. This aint gonna work. The engine will torq into the hood. If I put on my new under hood insulator, it would squish it and rub off my paint. I have the air cleaner base as low as it will go on the carb. The only alternative is cutting the two angled braces under the hood itself and plating it back in. This means the hood will have to come back off and I'd have bodywork and repaint on the underhood structure. I'm pretty sure the lowest stock air cleaner lid is the 4.3 fuel injected one which I have. Dang this sucks. I think I may just slap on a cheapy chrome 10 or 11 inch thin air cleaner. This car is wearing me out
I removed the foam seal and air filter and put on the lid. It goes a hair over a 1/4" lower. I have some universal foam seal on a roll that will squish almost completely flat and it fits in the channel on the lid. I went to K&Ns website and searched by dimension and found a filter that's identical to my current one but a 1/4" shorter. Stupid filter is over $70. That's a little high for a filter in my opinion but I need it. I ordered it through Summit but it's estimated delivery is the 29th. So I may have a temporary 10" on it for the G Body cruise
I had to remove my alternator to bend up a new steel fuel line. I had the alternator apart last year and painted it a charcoal gray. It kinda stuck out when the hood was up so I blasted it apart, scuffed it, and shot it matte black. Now it kinda goes away under there. Much better
And how exactly did that contribute to making this a driver?
