My 79 Brat build

Recommended Posts

Installed the front 2wd struts for my never ending search for more low! Had to make a few minor adjustments to get them to work right but they are on and everything is good!

So this weekend My buddy Mike got my new exhaust started for the turbo project. We decided to run 2 inch pipe over the 1 1/2 inch pipe that was on already. Pretty happy with the sound its much deeper.

We then put my old exhaust on his BRAT.

That is his Red BRAT
 
Then today my daughter asked to help me wash the BRAT so we did a pretty good detail job on it.

This thing looks sweet man! Makes me want to get out in the garage (on a day I don't work 12 hours) and get back to work on mine!

Thanks. A lot of hours have gone into this. But I think it's worth it. Luckily I have a buddy with an 80 GL brat so we just work on them together lol

So I installed some fog lights on the BRAT this afternoon to try and help with some of the bad visibility I have been having from spoob lights and I think it came out pretty cool.

So this weekend/today i got some goodies in the mail. I got rid of my Breathers and installed an oil catch can. And also got my FMIC because I decided I didn't want to put a hood scoop on the car. I did a quick test fit of the FMIC and it should fit fairly easy without too much modification.
