Found this:


I've always run the north/south bars up to this point. Kinda leery on not having them now. I fixed this and added a gusset. May look into adding more bracing later.

Wow, I applaud your work and detail.

I wish I had the means to give my Galant that kind of attention.

Thanks guys.
It's like, Every. Time. I turn around I find another thing that needs taken care of. I keep telling myself, as long as I keep doing SOMETHING, it'll come around.

Progress has been kind of slow recently.
I found a picture while browsing the other day that I must have studied for 10 minutes. Even though there are things I am unhappy with currently, I am still okay with how she looks compared to stock. Some things I don't even remember doing.


Also put something in motion I've been thinking about for a long time. Not certain on the results yet, might end up making a few renditions.






I ordered a 4" 90* coupler to connect the intake to the existing intake tube as well. This wont be just an air inlet

Yep, It's permanent.. err, sorta. I guess I'll always have a cutoff tool and a welder.

Aesthetically it looks bitchin, however i'm wary of airflow blockage, albeit pretty minimal. I assume that you'll be doing something to help direct air to and through your various heat exchangers.

You sir, are a fiend. It's awesome. Please continue.

I have to say though, I am a bit disappointed to see the BC's on there. I had em and they are not bad. I don't even know what you are going to do with the car, maybe they will be "sufficient". Just not on par with the rest of the build.

I have to agree with Apexhunter, the grill looks good, but airflow... I would continue with the theme you have for the headlight and add some ducting from the grill to that cooler.
