Time for an update on the old girl Wink

The first major thing that has changed over the past few months has been the exhaust, after 19yrs and several bad repairs the original system was very worse for wear and to be fair it sounded quite bad...

Removal of the old system required the use of my angle grinder more than anything else!

No sockets required Thumbs Up

After much faffing around with the mounts it came free!





To be fair after seeing it off the car I did wonder how it managed to stay together!

The only slight complication was dirt/rust on the chassis behind the mufflers, which is quite common on P38s. Bow down




It looked worse than it was!



I wire brushed it off and wiped it down to see what condition the metal was in.



Thankfully it was in good nick, a coat of hammerite kurust and some waxoyl should keep it at bay for a while Mr. Green

Much better!

And while the centre muffler was out of the way the chassis was painted!

Before and after as usual Wink

Moving on!

The exhaust replacement next, in the form of a nice Janspeed stainless unit, after much faffing and swearing it was fitted, the only real issue of the day was working on gravel Big Cry

The first oval hole and shotgun tip out the back Wink



2nd one fitted




Of course I polished the unit underneath too!



After a quick rub down!




And finally!!

Some better shots of the unit on the car! Laughing




Much better! Mr. Green

Sounds the part too!!

Exhaust Part 2 Mr. Green

When you have an exhaust made of 304 stainless it is ride not to make it sparkle, especially when it hangs down under the car Laughing
