Need O2 Extentions

The Cast headers are being replaced by CBR Stainless Works Long Tube Headers... So the wiring harness needed some extensions to reach the new O2 Sensor location...

See the opening in the top of the cast headers? That is the original location of the stock O2 location.

Hey Bruce, hope you are well.

Tom got the sub-frame connectors installed. I am chasing odds and ends for the install. There seems to be little surprises that pop up that temporarily pause the build until they get addressed.... like Sensor Extentions...

I went to San Antonio this past weekend for a trip. Stopped by and visited Vintage Air. Great company, with talented people. Met Jack, the owner. Awesome guy. They were very helpful. And their products are made in locally...

That is an electrical/instrument tubing strap with an adhesive back. It is trimmed down to fit and wrapped with a tie-wrap. They come in different tubing sizes, that one is for 1/4" tubing....

The wagon is mostly done. I am taking it today for the headliner install, make up a shift boot and it's finished. I have been driving it some, breaking it in...

Any company that sells wiring and accessories will have them. Waytek or whomever....

Similar to these, but you are looking for .25, or 1/4", item #25370....

We updated the sway bar to the new style bar that is fashioned much like the stock bar. The install is just as straight forward as the other. The brackets are tagged for the correct sides, and the install is a breeze. For those of you that already have the arms installed, I only had to drop one arm at the front to get the bar in.....

In the photos below, you can see the area that was freed up by the install of the new bar. The wheels are turned full lock on each side. The wheels are 8" wide with a 5" backspace.....

The original bar V1.0



Redesigned bar V2.0
