Seems like I spent all day working on this stupid thing. I got the headers,muffler and tail pipe 85% welded and hangers put on it. Also had to drill and tap the engine block for a bracket to relocate the tensioner pulley and the serp belt on.

the odds and ends are what takes up all the time and $20 after $20 after $20 adds up and gets annoying.
