Turned out rather nice n sparkly!! They’re now working on the exhaust tips, since they won’t be easily removable once fitted.

This exhaust section is off a 500SEL, but is probably the same for 560SEL. Note the balance / crossovers in the kidney muffler section. Obviously left and right banks are not kept separate all the way to the outlets.

This is the aftermarket system on her now. The engine pipes are pretty stuffed but I won’t have time to replace them before the cruise so the exhaust mob will have to undertake a temporary repair...

Make sure the 4 holes at the base of each cup are clear, otherwise you’ll have all sorts of issues. They really needed a dust boot over the whole thing, cause you never know what debris will get caught in there...
