Yes, I've had it for about 10 years now and it was time to clean her up. Took about 8 months and more money than id like to say (just in case the wife's listening). Raider will scratch not chirp 2nd gear with 31's on it.

Before Pic's : reason for strange file names is because there reduced sized files, which I delete after posting.

Very nice! Makes me a little ashamed of mine, and it's cleaner than most!

Can you give some details on your carb snorkel?

The Carb is from Re-Carb out of Australia, the snorkel is home-made, lots of trail and error on it, but in the end it turned out pretty good. I got the silicone tubing from siliconeintakes.com The bracket is actually a shelf bracket I had laying around in the garage. lol

Damn. Puts my work to shame. Mine has a 32/36 Weber, Pacesetter header, 2" custom catless exhaust, and 31" STT Pros and can also scratch second.

(Its also for sale... $5800 OBO)

Looks GREAT.

I just joined the group and an 87 Raider recently came into my possession.
It's not pretty yet (pretty rough would be a better description) but it runs/drives and only cost me $240.
I have lots of plans for the future. Hopefully it will turn out as nice as yours.
