Default Lake pipes

Installed one of my Lake Pipes I got for Christmas. I like it. They are fake lakes for now but I hope to soon have them installed

Also if you get a chance check out the movie ďThe Time Machine from 1960. It has Shirley Barrisí 1958 Thunderbird in it

How in the world are you gonna keep from yankin' those Lake Pipes off of there?

My stock bird scrapes over every speed bump. Maybe your "slightly" larger wheels and tires give you a bit more ground clearance.

I likes em'

Love the lake pipes, I am planning on using baffled lake pipes for my primary exhaust. Speaking of you wheels, what size are they?

A couple years ago,
I saw this on the road. Myself, not a fan. I don't see
the point of fake exhaust.
Doesn't the song say "Purrs like a kitten til' the Lake
Pipes Roar"?

For years my dad ran cherry bombs (glass packs) on mine.
They were long. He ran em under the front seats. After the
3rd or so time of tearing them off, he got smart and put the
shorty ones tucked in the back where the stk mufflers go.

I like the look, and if you install them properly, with the mount on the bottom the pipes are up and outside the rocker as opposed to below it.

My .02 though is to get rid of the long exhaust tips, or do like I saw on a guys bird and cut out half a round on the bumper and tuck them up.

Thanks guys. Iíve some more adjustments to get them how I want them and then I am having set up as workable exhaust. All of the hard work is finally starting to pay off about $3k more and it will be done. Iíve got glass packs behind the rear tires. I canít wait to hear it through the lakes as well. It has a nice rumble now. Pulled it out of the garage yesterday and grab these shots of it.
