    I enjoy watching this channel, up until I found your channel I had been wondering what Napoleon Dynamite was doing these days. It was nice of you to give him a job and teach him some useful skills; goodness knows his rex-kwon-do wasn't going to get him anywhere.

    should make both side flares and match the rando bends before welding up to ensure some symmetry. later: full compression should be checked with full twist (opposite side dropped). watching them do XJ stuff makes me so nostalgic.

    Xj noobs.. if you gonna cut go ahead and do the full cut.. itโ€™s easy to fab and fix the rear and front.. at this time is when you go ahead and stretch the front a couple inches to get out of the firewall.. you have minor relocation issues under the hood doing this..
