Ok, I have just put '69 style sidepipes onto my '77. Now, yes, I am pleased w/ the "roar" but also a little nervous about the sound if the local police come by. This added to the eventual Pete Jackson gear drive this winter- hard time wiping the grin off my face. (-= NOw, to the question- in installing my fiberglass sidepipe covers I removed the rocker panels that were on- should I have left them on? Seems like there is a gap at the top just under the door where you see my light blue paint- is this correct or should I leave them/ put them on so as to be behind the sidepipes? thanks in advance.
