Hoooooly crap. We finally finished dad's car. He's really pleased, and I can see why. It sounds so much meaner than it did with the stock headers, it's amazing!

We're both exhausted and hot. I think it got up to 75°F or so, and it was pretty unpleasant in the sun. I think we started around ten, and just now came up to the house to wash our hands and have some wine. 💁🏻
