Nice shot of the seam between the roof and quarter panel. I wonder if Torinos and Cyclones share the same roof?

Have you done anything to the quarters yet?

I think I would just have focused on driving mine and enjoying it if it weren't for the damage.

Used to drive it to work all the time when it was bashed in worse and I could just barely shut the driver's door.

There's nothing I haven't been able to fix so far, though, and I tend to believe the it's just a matter of time.

Need to get mine out of boneyard status to reliable and safe, then go from there. Thinking about everything you need to do all at once will drive you crazy. bounce

That's pretty incredible, Chris.

Is it just a different type of bulb?

Got the 3" exhaust on with magnaflow mufflers
I have to say the Magnaflow mufflers have a great sound, not too loud cruising
but give it some gas & they come alive.
I will try to load up a video of them.

Looking forward to seeing the pics/video.

I need to do something with mine once I get the quarter panel/door jamb repair done.

Did you have to get new tailpipes (ones that go over the rearend) made?

Yeah, I wanted to dump them before the axle but here we have state inspections & sometimes
they will not pass it if dumped.

+1 on the sound.

I have Cherry Bomb glasspacks on mine and yours sound just as good.

Did the H-pipes come with the kit or did you have to make them?
