i know the baffles look a lil sloppy. truth is their not. they fit like a glove with the corners snipped. but i wanted the edges to only touch in a coupls spots for spot welds. rest i wanted for a lil flow.

number 2 will be recessed so the pick up hits just right. plus then the cover i make can rest on the top flush and not hit the lines
