  1. That is the line of thinking that made me end up getting JTR shorties. I didn't place my motor in a "standard" location and I wanted to use a Sander/Vintage air AC compressor. Hawks are a significant cost, but if I knew they would fit and be done, I would spend the money. They should have a beat up set in mild steel or something that they ship to people for mock-up. Test headers. Building a set is tempting. Something super custom and self made is always gratifying. Check out Cone Engineering for collectors. https://www.coneeng.com/exhaust_system_kits.html and Columbia River has good pricing on mandrel bends http://www.mandrelbends.com/mandrel-bends.html Also Speedway Motors has builder kits that might be a good starting point. You can fab it out of mild steel and send it over to Jet-Hot for coating. https://www.speedwaymotors.com/shop/speedway-exhaust-header-pipe-kits~8207-10191-4529-11-524-31037 Ultimately I just opted to get the off the self JTR/Sandersons and move on. They are not my favorite design, but I am certain the will get the job done. https://jagsthatrun.com/products/headers-for-datsun-z-ls1-v8?variant=7943951777835
  2. Nice! That is a big step. My feelings on manifolds were similar to yours. The power gain is not really a factor, OEMs are nicely designed and if they fit, run em. I went with the JTR/Sandersons they are ok. Easy close fit to the block, which leaves plenty of room. The are off the shelf, which saves time and expense. In hindsight I sort of wish I had either went with Hawks long tubes, or made my own. Honestly, mostly because long tubes look cool. The turbo guys weld V-band flanges to OEM manifolds all the time. Might be worth considering. I am sure whatever you come up with will be bad ass.
  3. Agreed, you can move that sheet metal under the battery "down" a long way. Are you going to stick with the exhaust manifolds?
  4. Awesome work! Who the heck uses 12-24?
  5. How do you plan to fill the gap between the inner and outer panel? When I did my flares, I left the inside long and folded it over, welding it to the outside. Are you going to make a filler?

    I did not use these and my shaft cleared with minor trimming. I may have a photo somewhere.

    Matt is the man. I got a few parts from him and intend on having him put together a set of wheels for me.

    Cool color. How about flex additive like they use for modern bumpers?

    What an amazing car! Great work.
  10. Great work! I am well versed in just how tight of a fit that is for the compressor. You got that tucked way in there.

    I think we should all hold from speculating until the vendor has had a chance to respond. I will PM you the contact information I have for Joe at Chequered Flag.
  13. Chunky! That's awesome. I may have to hit up Jongbloed for a set of wheels.
  14. Looks fantastic. What size tires did you go with?

    Looks great. Who's shift boot is that? Hurst? Regarding the high beam indicator light, I wonder if you could add a diode somewhere to prevent back feeding.
