dude, that pic with the serious manifold in the coffin hole is the most amazing hack job i have ever seen. i hate manifolds if they are more than two valves. they are rediculous to work on if there is a break in the general area of that thing. most times, if i have to do some cutting to do repairs i split up the vavles and put them in separate valve boxes for the future and get rid of the manifolding.
all is fair in love and grass!
Man, it smells like sheet, do you smell that!!
