My two old birds :)
« on: February 29, 2016, 09:26:56 PM »
It's been a while since I've been able to get on but I realized that I've never really shared my two eagles Lol. So here they are, a 1981 sx/4 and a 1983 wagon limited. Both have been projects for some time now, but they're finally getting some love. Tell me what you think, I'd love to hear the input :)

I've been considering side pipes. How did you do it? Do you like them?

Lol thanks :) The pipes have a great sound all their own and all I had to do was make a custom Y pipe and run off of the stock flange ( although I'll probably go with duals if I can fit the headers I have).  I've also thought about a lift on the sx4 but I'm still torn on whether or not to actually drop it and go full street machine with it :D  But honestly I'd be happy finding a couple missing trim pieces for the wagon right now Lol.

What trim pieces are you looking for?
