Neddy Posted December 10, 2022 Author Share Posted December 10, 2022 Slow but steady progress on the chassis and running gear. Front and rear suspension, steering linkage and back axle/diff installed. Propshaft shortened and ready to go in when the engine and gearbox are fitted. I've started work on the exhaust system but the lairy headers I wanted to use foul the chassis so I'll have to go with the stock ones and modify the exhaust further back. Anybody got any ideas as to how much heat and from what source would enable the plastic pipes to be softened enough to gently bend without them either melting or igniting? Available options are:- 1. Hair dryer. (Proved ineffective at straightening a warped chassis on a previous model). 2. Boiling water immersion (possible but a bit deadly on the fingers). 3. Naked flame - match, cigarette lighter or similar (see 2 for side-effects). Other possibilities occur to me - Leaving in the oven, under a Harrier jumpjet or in a nuclear reactor - but these may not be practical solutions... 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
