As I am still considering side pipes I was wondering how many of the members here with side pipes that werent factory setups have changed the rear valance panel or have you left the original panel for rear exhaust on the car. If I go with side pipes I dont think I would go to the expense of changing the rear panel. what are your thoughts? Rodney
Vette(s): MM Red 1971 T-top,LS5,4-speed, black leather C5 seats, Hooker sidepipes.
Previous: 64 Coupe, 65 Roadster L76 / N14
I kept the panel with cut-outs and inserted KC backup lights there that I wired into the back-up light harness. Changed the stop/tail lights to four across so this way I still have BU lights. Doesn't look bad at all.
Vette(s): 1972 Targa Blue, T-Top, Saddle leather, 350 auto,numbers match, all original except '69 factory side exhaust.
Previously owned: 1969 427, 390hp, 4sp, Riverside Gold coupe, factory side exhaust
Hey Barry.....Thanks for asking.
At the risk of getting my knuckles rapped with a ruler, Gordy is finishing up repairing the seams and the new fender is on. He is going to the NCRS Regional meet in FL next week but when he gets back he should be ready to lay down some color. I'll try and post a few more fotos. I enjoy following your project.
