That is a nice car, Russ.

Exhaust sounds great.

Where did you get the idea for that?

Read a bunch of books, studied every Ferrari V-12 exhaust design, and bounced some ideas off of a "World Famous Exhaust Designer", who I am sure is too modest to want his name revealed. But, it rhymes with "Halo".

Russ; Back in country?

Still wondering if I should acquire an old OEM Mondial T exhaust, gut it, for ease of tips and mounding points then do your design.

PS> NOT looking fwd to recreating the exhaust manifolds, just the can.

Still over here in Germany. I think the labor and weight involved in converting a t muffler would not be as good as very simply welding the few parts together, although it could be done. The t should be very simple to do, ..much simpler than the 3.2. Good luck!!

ok, IF I get this right, just two cans together, with a cross inbetween like above, and four tips connected together...piece-o-cake

Not a very good photo . . . but the interior leathers are in excellent condition. No dye to my knowledge.

VERY VERY NICE: I have an extra set of 89 seats....and they don't look that good.

Like the floor mat combo, very different and very nice.

Your leather is in great shape.....and other than the motronics on the 89 I like the interior better than later models: That dang seat mouse is a PITA.
