Upgraded the headlights last week to some nice hella's with replaceable bulbs. This way I can upgrade the bulbs or convert to hid's. Also significantly better optics

Fixed the front bumper today, way mor involved than we thought. Both front main supports were broken from the main frame. Both side attachment bolts were also not attached! Basically the bumper was hanging on by a thread, literally a couple of small screws. So we re welded the main supports an attached the bumper side bolts. No it might actually do something in the event of a bump.

New developments, burst pipe and floor under water tank disintegrated. Floor should be n easy fix along with the burst pipe. Hopefully the burst pipe is only in the spot where I can see. I drained the whole tank but apparently I need to do some winterizing research going forward.

I need to research that also. We had a recent cold snap that made me nervous. Not as bad as up north but cold for us. I put a light in the back to keep the temp up a little.

So far, I cannot do anything with Airstream about the fading.

However, if both of you PM us your regular name and address, we will replace that material, at no charge.

GMEHAL.

Today, we shipped to you, via USPS, 3 rolls of the Orange insert, at no charge.

Sorry it took so long to get Airstream's approval.

Andy

Hedman headers arrived, now I just have to get them on. Trouble is the custom exhaust I had made now needs to be modified for the long tube headers, think I will have to have the same shop install them again and modify the system. Should be good for another 20hp.

I'm also thinking it's time to overhaul the gererac generator. It needs a new exhaust system for it so the real questions are,

Is it cheaper to replace? maybe with a similar sized used Onan?

Or do a lite rebuild and make a new exhaust for the generac?

How do you get that thing out anyway?

Let me know what you find out about the Generator exhaust I need to do the same thing. Can't seem to find out much info about the exhaust here.

My restoration has pretty much stopped minus 20 degrees here can't do much for another month maybe 2.

Got my dash air and heater all cleaned up. Had to have new hoses made up for the air conditioner,The old ones were porous and a new dryer I just have to reinstall and have it recharged.I also had to make new seals for the doors that close off the heat and defrost and fix any cracks and holes in the plastic housing. Also had to replace some of the vacum hoses

Just got the long tube headers installed on the Moho today and boy what a difference! Way better sound and easily another 15-20hp seat of the pants. Also had a new generator exhaust installed

Nice!
I'm planning on something similar,
would you mind telling me where you got them,
the brand and the price ?

Is it a 'bolt-on' kit or does one have to make some sort of adaptor
to make it fit the rest of the system ( backwards to the mufflers etc. )




Thanks !

I should have payed a bit more attention to your
previous posts, shouldn't I !!?
Answers a couple of my questions.

...you have any idea if the Hedman headers is a direct fit to an original-type exhaust system?

Thanks.
