    cutting begins......the plastic bag helped.........but still a few shavings got in the valley.........used a dremel with those quickchange cut off wheels.......made the 1st cut at the bottom......then cuts in the middle......a big hammer will break off the pieces so you dont have to cut all the way.......i used a air grinder to finish up

    you cant see it.....but using the LS6 steam tube in the rear reverses the outlet....I cut the outlet off to about 1/2 inch and soldered it shut....the outlet hit the main wire harness before I cut it....smack dab in the middle of it
