    Yes it is !!! Went out today and got her to bark tires going into drive. Yes size 14 was in it. That was fun!!
    Passes everything except the gas station. 68-70 mph is 3000 rpm not bad for cruising whack it and she jumps to it. The flowmasters sound smooth around that rpm, no drone.
    Supposed to be pretty nice rest of week last I looked at weather.

    Cultivate your photographer. The pics are starting to rival some I have seen taken at the "Eyes on Design" show at the Edsel and Elanor Ford house on Lake StClair.

    Ah more fun started this morning. Nice weather figured drive to work. Started car up get some revs to heat her up a little, she cold natured. All of a sudden noticed an unusual noise turned lights on to light gauges and no oil pressure ! Shut down pop hood see oil on floor switch vehicles to go to work. Oil pressure gauge line popped out of fitting.

    So after work ran a new copper line to gauge and oil change. All good again.

    At least it happened in garage not out on road ! Try this again tomorrow morning.

    Watch that copper line. Vibration might make it brittle and crack

    If you plan on keeping the copper line, find the area where it flexes from engine movement then make a coil there in the line at least three or four rounds to minimize the flexing. I had a Chevy C-10 pickup that had the coiled copper line, 1973, that ran over 200K miles with no damage to the oil guage line. I didn't come up with that , GM did, and it appears to work great.

    I use a -3 braided line on all my oil pressure gauges. Street car, race car, doesn't matter, absolutely the safest.

    The copper line was used as that is what was in stock at the parts store.

    pmrphil you have the best way.

    Copper and nylon both have issues as I know. Have used both in the past. No matter which one you use someone always has the other opinion and stories on why. Have seen both fail.

    Went to a show couple of weeks ago rolled out with best of show!!!
    Since then went to another show didn't win anything though was asked if I would consider loaning to a museum for a 6 moth period. Told them to let me know more details and I would be open to considering.
    Still need to get console installed waiting on buddy to get done with it, he's building a shop to get more volume thru now. Also need to do headliner at some point !
    Though now hunting season starts taking priority !!
