Did a little exhaust work on her today, took the headers, j tubes, and stinger to work today and sandblasted it welded the j-tubes to make it one solid header, also patched a quarter sized hole on the pass side where the header meets the j-tube, and gave it a nice coat of high temp. It sounds a whole lot better, I can hear my radio without turning it up too loooud. I will post some pics of my work later alien

I did a few things over the weekend, mainly exhaust and heat. I went to tims vw salvage on clay rd in mableton and got a pretty good deal on some heater boxes with tin, empi quad tip exhaust and all the gaskets to hook everything up, even the 4 heater hoses and the back tin. And also got a set of lug nuts for the rear since I lost two of my old ones. cost me $120 for all of it.

I like the look Cool

I am so Very Happy right now, no money was spent fixing Toby just wasted on breaking him. My alternator was hooked up wrong, the light was connected to ground, I new that a couple weeks ago, but since then Toby was running like crap spitting and sputtering under load, I new it was not the carb because that pos was running perfectly before hand, I decided to take my 009 dizy apart to see if the spring was still there which it was, i figured since i had it out i might as well put the points and condenser back in, and what do you know fired right up like nothing even happened and runs better than ever, It was the Hotspark electronic ignition this whole da-gum time cheers 30 dollars well spent huh Evil or Very Mad. I might throw it back in there tomorrow to be positive it was the EI... but for now... IM GOING TO DRIVE THE HECK OUT OF TOBY!!!!!! Cool

I drove my blue 67 with two outers just like that. I took out the bump stops so it would sit lower and it ended up basically bottomed out.
