    There's plenty of room on the passenger side of #2613's engine compartment for a Roots-style, er, "pre-muffler" ... ;-) But that is not happening. LOL

    That's exactly why I chose them. (Also they're stainless steel.) Then I installed them and, well ... I was surprised. Apparently "quiet" on a muscle car forum doesn't mean much. I like to listen to...

    Sounds like an interesting setup. That's the same muffler I used, but as you can see I used two of them.

    Thanks for the info, everyone. I'll just remove any loose sealant, scrape away the rest, and have at it Dunmurry-style with new goop. :)

    Looks like the seam/join runs all the way across the roof box between the doors, right at the rear corners.

    New discovery:

    I thought the roof box was all one piece, but apparently, it isn't. The area just behind the electrical access panel flexes easily enough for me to press it down (and then it...

    I was just going to use the same black urethane they use for windshields. Is that the same as "tiger bond"?

    If needed, I will shotgun the box. I may also buy an NOS rubber pad from DMC for underneath the T-Panel since those are available and mine looks misshapen. (Or I may try to roll my...

    On a related note, what size are the six sheet metal screws (three per side) that fasten the T-Panel to the edge just behind the doors? Two of mine seem questionable, so I'd like to replace them.

    [Frame & Body] T-Pain

    Pulled the T-Panel today. It came off very easily with a trim stick. It looks like some work was done underneath this panel before, and it was not sealed very well afterward:
