I had the car on a lift today and looked for the bulb where the catalytic converter was supposed to be. Here is the picture, apparently it was cut off and welded...

Thanks for the confirmation. From the previous photos you posted it looked like it was cut out, this is good confirmation. I was going to cut it out regardless, its drawn out in sharpie so no turning back now right?

Turrets very roughly fitted. Ignore the m8 hardware, its only there for test fitting.

Well to get it to this point no it did not take 80 hours. However this does not include the boxes for the links, the fact that the towers are not welded in and the tabs on the axle are there for set up purposes, not permanent. That being said if I fully welded them they probably could be put to service.

Maybe 80 hours is a bit steep but its not that unrealistic. Yes I started this tower thing friday or saturday but the last few days I have slept very little. Doesn't hurt that im loosing the garage really soon so I have deadlines. sad smiley


Hire me? Hahaha i probably wouldn't say no. smileys with beer Hey you ship stuff out today?
