Yeah, i'm telling myself that. I have a total of 7 more classes before this project has to be done and have a write-up for me to get my final grade in welding class.

Wow beautiful!

I'm going for something exactly like that except without the catalytic converter since I'm keeping my stock headers for now. A removable cat may be in the plans for the future.

For the center support, I think I'm going to bend and cut some stainless steel sheet metal and mount it to the black brace kind of like the OEM center support.

Thanks for the pictures though. That's really helpful as it gives me a better idea of what I'm going to be doing. Thanks for offering the help as well.

Lame... By clearance them, what do you mean? Simply grinding some material away?
