78 mustang ii header issues, help?

Hotrod Pinto, You go brotha man. Couldn't have said it better myself. I suspect that crammers response hit close to home with you, being a Pinto fan. I bought an 80 Pinto myself a few years ago to hotrod it, but my wife wasted my project fund on bills & food for the kids. I've always wanted a hotrod pinto - love that 'homely' look.

What ****weed doesn't realize (or maybe he does & he's an even bigger a$$hole than I originally thought), is that folks have very different tastes in cars. Shoot, the folks at CarCraft are hotrodding a Rambler. Myself, I have the worlds second ugliest car - the 66 Ranchero & I love it.

Because they're not face to face, some of these jacka$$es think they can 'talk' to folks in a way they'd never talk to a 'real' person.

Life long project. No it wont ever end....

In the process of doing this now. To get passenger side to fit, the car is on jack stands, I had to unbolt the front right motor mount & jack up on the engine. I cut off the rear tube that had the slip joint & it went in, then lower the engine down to get it to line up.. Wishing I would slid them into place BEFORE I reinstalled the heads.

Hoping driver side goes easier.
