And so it is done. The car now has insurance and is 100% street-legal!

There’s no rush though, as various dash parameters still need adjusting; don’t want to head out and have wrong values being reported. Also tried adding a thermal blanket over the exhaust manifold and… ugh, note to self, don’t do this in a garage. The amount of smelly smoke that off-gasses is pretty bad; I’ll be hearing about that for a while. Also, I just wrapped the blanket around the header loosely and it looks pretty crummy. Anyhow, now the build moves from construction to testing! Baby steps.
