Didn't seem to do much. The lemon juice is highly regarded, and supposed to be cheap at dollar stores. Vineger would work too, but I hate the smell of it.

Well, I'll look at the options and decide when the time comes. I just need to check the account to make sure there is enough $$ and I am going to order the randakk kit for my birthday.

Tried to fit up the Honda mufflers, and the SS headers extend ~1-2" too far back. Found a stock set and they are on the way. Meanwhile, I pulled the cover off the seat. Ordered a new one that came in today so I put it on this afternoon. Pretty pleased with how it came out.

Stock headers came in today right after lunch. Installed with mufflers, reinstalled rear wheel and swapped the '79 with the Hunley so I can pull the Hunley's carbs and find what is wrong/fix #2.
