I bought the rigid flaring tool and bender. The key to flaring the stainless is cutting it with a good hack saw blade. Cut off wheel or tubing cutter hardens the stainless .  Turned out really nice . I seamed sealed the new floor. Tried to talk Jack into painting body color . But he didn't want to wait. All most looks factory.

I bought the rigid flaring tool and bender.

It looks like the pricing has gotten much more reasonable since the last time I looked at them. Its been a few years (or more), but the Rigid was over $200 then.

The key to flaring the stainless is cutting it with a good hack saw blade. Cut off wheel or tubing cutter hardens the stainless .

I knew that the cutter would but wouldn't have thought that a wheel would. But I had always heard that a bandsaw or hacksaw were best.

I seamed sealed the new floor. Tried to talk Jack into painting body color . But he didn't want to wait. All most looks factory.

It definitely looks good.

I did the bumpers and grill on my old FX4 in the Rustoleum bed liner spray. It had some texture without looking caked on. I thought it would be good is areas like that

Rigid 277

Yeah, that's it. They used to be a lot more than that. I'm glad to see that they are more reasonable now.

I might have to add one to my collection.

I like how clean and accessible everything is.

But the mixture of fitting colors would drive me nuts. But that's just me.

6 AN push lock hose sucks.

I have only ever used Aeroquip AQP pushloc, but it was very easy to work with.

Just heat the hose in boiling water or with a heat gun, lube the hose end, and push them together. No clamps or collars like some other brands use.

Juice any fitting bought new was black. Most of the stuff was scavenged off old projects or what was available at the time or bought used.

If you guys are happy with it, I'm happy for you.

I'm just ocd about stuff like that, which is probably why I stick with the red/blue. I think that the black looks great but I know that I'm more likely to find what I need in red/blue.

All push lock was Fragola products. 8an / 10an easy.  6an not so much.

Thats weird.

As I said, the only pushloc that I've ever used was Aeroquip. It was all -6 and was very easy to use. I still have it on my trans cooler lines.

I see that you still have the small distributor cap. You haven't had any phasing issues with the timing retards?

I know the boxes that you use only retards 10. My timing computer has 20 start and up to 20 step retards, and I'd be leary of using those with a small cap.

Took brake combo valve out and installed a adjustable proportion valve in the rear brakes. Made a huge difference in brake performance. Got the new peddle assembly installed nitrous kicks on instant now. Would recommend anyone with a fox body and a Holley carb to invest in one. Went and made a few test hits in Mexico to day.
