Towed it to work and bent up some pipe. Ran pretty late last night so I didn't get the hangers done. I can do them later. Important thing is that I got use of the bender.

Planning on pre bent exhaust kit for my car.

Looks nice and compact.

Like a box of mandrel bends? That'd be nice.

Yea exactly. Columbia River Mandrel Bending (http://www.mandrelbends.com/) has a great selection and you can pick up from their warehouse.

Just felt like bumping the thread. After a 450 mile trailer ride and a year and a half in the corner of my dad's shop, it finally lives in my garage again. No actual work has been done.

I'd love to. I have had a specific plan in mind this whole time as to the level I wanted to build it as it was never intended to be a driver again. Reliable and streetable, yes. But nicer than a daily driver. Well, 19 years have come and gone and with the mechanicals basically handled, it's down to body and paint. I'm getting tired of not driving it so I may just throw it together so that it's actually driveable instead of a pile of parts.

I would get it derivable asap, you may get more motivated once it moves under its own power.
Personally if any of my vehicles will not move under its own power it drives me nuts.
