The car is looking great, would you be willing to elaborate on the custom tubes you made for the gauges? I think your modification looks really fantastic, but still retains a stock appearance. I would like to something similar if you are willing to share.
Dave, Sure. I took a piece of PVC pipe the same diameter and cut pieces (sleeves) to length that would put the gauge just past the upper edge of the bezel. The dash trim is angled so it will need to be long enough to extend just past the longest part. I took the sleeves and had them threaded on the inside to match the gauge bezel threads. Remove the stock bezel ring and thread the sleeves on. From there just bond the sleeves onto the dash trim. Be sure to have the gauges tight and level when bonding them as its not too easy to adjust afterward.
Here is a view of the magnaflow exhaust from the rear.
Under the rear axle exhaust is certainly not common. If it works I do do like it. Do you have any travel limiters to prevent hard contact, and is it a concern, understanding it sounds like you haven't had much street time yet?
