Local fab shop got a waterjet so I drew up some brackets for the engine plate and alternator. Didint turn out too bad. Still gotta do a little fitting on the alternator bracket.





Cut the plenum off the manifold and cut out the pieces for the new plenum.



Made some patterns with the laser. Worked pretty slick.

Thanks homies. Kinda torn on how to finish the manifold.

Should I polish it or powder coat it black?

Kinda leaning towards powder coat cause polishing blows....

Power coat sounds easier. Polishing takes forever

Pretty much finished. Gotta weld on a throttle cable mount and the fuel rail mounts.
