Here are some update pics on this beast. Removed stock muffler, kept headers and attached shorty pipes, man are they loud. Don't worry, I'm wearing ear protection!Also got all of the wiring figured out, so she is now street legal. Enjoy the pics😀

You're wearing ear protection? What about everyone else?

Anyway, nice job on the paint, even if it is an assault on the ears.

Looking good, now you'll just have to remember to keep revving it while stopped at a light, like all the other loud pipes. :twisted: :twisted:

Those look more like megaphones than mufflers. They probably amplify the sound. Looking good.

Looks best in the first picture, now looks like another noise maker. Another old Honda gone to the scrap heap :cry: . To each his own I guess. :( . Sorry to see it like this.

Well crap! I thought this post was about my second wife.
Seriously, beautiful job! I did something very similar with a 79 one time.
