Good news: Best. Birthday present. Ever. Getting them on, along with 3 inch aluminized pipes (with X-pipe- would prefer not to have one, but Dad wants to, and it’s supposed to help flow) dumping in front of the rear tires. It will absolutely shriek.

Now for the bad news: Kipper’s frame is cracked. Which is really depressing, I’ve formed a huge emotional attachment to it. It’s like finding out a friend got a terminal illness. You want to help, but there’s nothing you can do. It’s not bendy or anything, so I guess after I fix the brakes I’ll drive it until the frame snaps.
