    Jacked up my pathetically low hanging exhaust yesterday. It's still not perfect but I'm getting there. Next adjustment I think i'm going to have to undo most of the exhaust to get it perfect, and I wasn't up for that.

    Basically when the PO installed the test pipe they didn't slide the tail section far enough onto the test pipe, so it looked kinda like this at the joint: /\, and that made my tailpipe point at the ground and hang 4" too low in the back. I loosened the clamp at that joint, unbolted the rear hangar, and yanked on the joint to pull it down and force the tailpipe section onto the test pipe. Then I jacked the tail pipe up (with a floorjack and a 6x6 so I didn't jerry the chrome), pulled it again, felt it slide, and it was pretty close to straight. I bolted everything back up and when I released the jack it sagged down a little due to play in the bushing, but it was close enough. I can get in there and fine tune the hangar if I really feel the need one day.

    Thermostat is stuck open so that will need to be fixed but it's not making it undriveable so I'm trying to push it till the weekend because I have stuff to do this week.

    Dat nali gone boi. Sold it Friday to a buddy of mine. Going to be his son's car, that kid got hooked up on a fresh ride. Sad it's gone but happy that someone is psyched to get it. Someone else will get as much enjoyment out of it as I did.
