I started by modifying an eagle talon manifold to fit the B18.
Created a new engine side part of the manifold cut and welded the talon manifold to fit.

holy shit that sol hurt my eyes. You've got a ways to go if you plan on cleaning up that ugly.

I think you got taken on that deal. That thing is beat to crap. My time would have been worth well more than what is needed to fix that thing. You should have bought Brians car and put 1/16th of the time to get the body straight.
There is definately body damage on that thing. Neither of the fenders line up right, and the driver's door looks like it's been hit.

Part it out and it should be easy to save up for B's car.

the fender gaps look like shit cause it's got EG headlights/corners and bumper.

I am going to need new fenders and redo the EG conversion. the guys helping me out are perfectionists, and been doing it for a long time, so it'll look good when finished. I post updates
