While waiting for the body to be painted I made some heat shields for the catalytic converts. Very simple design that did a great job reflecting heat for the cats.
I decided to make use of the air pump and ran teflon hoses to the cats. Some builders say they did not need to do this but what the heck, I thought I would add them and maybe keep the cats a little cooler. Since I added the teflon hoses I also decided to replace the donor’s TAD/TAB which turned out to have a vacuum leak (the hoses are not on in this picture). Then I decided to replace the oxygen sensors since the donors sensors were old.
The body needs to get done soon, I am spending too much money on these last minute details.
I got the call from the painter that it was time to bring the chassis in so the body could be fit on the chassis. So on the trailer it went. I was grateful it did not rain that day.
Hours spent on the build: 338 hours
