Does your Mitsubishi L300 make a strange noise? Need wheel alignment specs?

Since you missed the group buy on the snorkel, have you talked to Butch at CVI? I was there about a month ago, and he had an L300 parts vehicle out front that had a snorkel.

Wow, now that that ugly part of my life is behind me, I can get started again. Installed the distributor this morning. Had to cur out the back of the firewall to get it there.

First I made the bottom cut, installed the hinges, then made the next three cuts. She slipped right in!

Spent all day doing a 2 hour job because i keep forgetting to think ahead and had to undo everything at least twice. I was smart enough to take photos of everything, however I was not smart enough to put the card in the camera. So all I have is a finished photo.
First pic is the back side of the center console. The second are the wires for the light bar, The come out just below the drip rail behind the pax door. There are three layers of metal there to drill through and try to feed wires through. I still need to put a ground wire through and then seal with silicone. Exhaust headers were dry fitted today as well.

Bit the bullet and hired in some guns = Leaf springs hung!!!
Hopefully over the next week I'll get the axle installed and then we can reattach the steering. Custom rad is supposed to finally arrive this week.
