11/30–12/26 2-17. Larry Brinker was planning a visit, so I unmasked the car and put it back on all fours. The Sweet-Thunder exhaust was too loud. There is a business in Mesa that fabricates glass pack mufflers. I drove down there and bought parts to make my own 40″ muffler inserts. Larry made the flat ends to fit the perforated tube and the inside of the side tubes. The new exhaust is a lot quieter. Tolerable even. It’s probably more restrictive, but we’ll see. In addition to the 2.25″ perforated tubes, I also bought 2.25″ tubes so I can make another set of mufflers. The last photo is a mock-up of of rear window trim that may have to be fabricated. I don’t have any moldings, and they are not being reproduced.
