From here on in, the #FairmontProject videos will be, for the most part, episodic. Meaning, I’m going to chronicle the build as it happened rather than post videos about installing certain parts.

In this episode I wrap up the work on the K member with a little custom fitting and some borrowed parts from the Mustang. I also start work on the cold side piping of the turbo.
Fun fact: I believe this is the last video Cameraman Brian worked with me on the build. He had other work and some travel that kept him busy.

Be sure to tune in at the end for some bloopers.
