I finally got the other pipe fabbed up. Now I need to weld them up and make brackets and exhaust flanges. Stingers, silencers, the list goes on and on but I feel like I'm making progress slowly. These pipes were stressing me out when the second one was being fabbed. Sometimes I can sense when I'm on the road to screwing things and I know that I need to back off. I went at it again yesterday and things just started clicking. I need to pick up an ignition switch so that I can start to look at the wiring then it will be on to rebuilding the carburetors.

Thanks Rich Ard. The road just got a little longer because the side stand no longer fits and the kick starter will have to be modified but what the heck I'm saving this poor rust bucket right?
Brad, as a welder, would you grind the mig tacks down before welding out the joints or just go right over them?
