Judging by the look on her face, I find it hard to believe that her enjoyment was solely as a result of having been for a ride in a vintage Caddy. Have you checked your credit card statement lately? They may have went on a shopping spree at your expense! She has that 'shop-aholic' look. Clay/Lexi

I have a bucketful of nuts and bolts from the engine overhaul and from this body work. I don't throw anything away. If you end up needing anything else, let me know and I'll take a look

If you have access to an old tire, you can cut it and do your own insulators.
I don't know if the install kit is allowing for the exhaust dilatation, but it's something to consider. When I restored my '56 de Ville, I just discarded the tiny steel or brass "supports". Later, I saw that the mufflers were looking at the ends like an accordion. Then, I understood why those discarded parts were needed: the tubes can slide on them when the exhaust system is expanding. As the 1956 system is different than '54-'55, I don't know how the whole thing is installed.

What are you guys using for exhaust ports through the bumper...and how to center them? I'd much rather have the exhaust condensation go all the way out than into the bumper end. The bracket inside one of the bumper ends is pretty much unusable so that doesn't help.

What do you think of this? McVeys sells these 3 things separately: exhaust port insert, installation kit and insulator.  I think the total is about $232.  And knowing McVeys, the shipping will be about $40.
