Shiney is good!
While we're on the subject of front end assembly...the "L" shaped weatherstrip/seal the goes on the inner fender well flange that follows the profile of the fender... I'm assuming since it is "L" shaped, the unattached leg is outward towards the fender? I don't know of any other reason why it would be "L" shaped. Is this correct, but I also don't know how much space is between the fender and the inner fender.

   Almost too quiet is not good enough.   You'll have to get under there and make some holes in the pipes or something so we will know that your'e coming. HA HA Jay

My car had 2 1/2 Smittys on my car when I bought it, everybody knew where I was!!! (Not good). When I replaced the 302 with the 390 I went to a 2" exhaust with the "Turbo" mufflers. I really did it to get the car on the road with a "base line" system. I plan on going to a 2 1/2" pipes with a cross over, headers, and TBD mufflers. I like the tailpipes exiting behind the rear wheels so far but.... still researching (reading these posts)!  :003:

Barry, at the recent Muscle Car madness (that Tom Drummond attended while he was here), cruising of the complex was allowed (encouraged), I was known to go eight up at one stage (who needs airbags?).
Even when cruising six up (with a load of likely lads) I have scraped frame rails over our severe speed humps through the middle of town.

I only seem to be able to post two pictures so this one is how the lens will fit in the housing.

Thanks for the kind words, Guys. this was the second to last major road block, the first being budget, to getting this thing finished. The tail light rings are 1950 Merc. headlight frenching rings. We chucked them up in a lathe and took about 3/8 of an inch off to bring the outside diameter down to fit the body. with an adapter ring made, the complete 57 tail light now mounts from inside. The inside dia. hugs the lens much tighter than the stock housing and allowed me to tunnel the tail lights about 1 inch. When finished I hope the change will be subtle and will make someone have to look twice to figure out what was done.

Not sure if this is gonna work...
or just go to the thread under brake related stuff. This pic shows everything but the bracket. The bracket mounts to the firewall. I posted this pic because the bracket you need fits into the groove in the aluminum fitting keeping the cable housing secured in place. I'm not at home so I can't get to my pics, not sure if I can get to the ebay # Pete posted to see if it's what I'm talking about. Also, don't know what clips you're talking about to "retain the end of the cable". Are you making your own cable rather than buying the premade ones with all the fittings, etc?

I have "smittys" on my 57 ,just inside the frame rails and at the same angle as the rails ,has a real neat appearance and they sound pretty good exiting under the bumper. I put a set of Flowmaster 40's on my brothers Mustang about a month ago and they are too loud!
Oh  Junior 58 , you mention being fully loaded , what are you hauling in New Zeland ?
