The exhaust laid out

Well I haven't updated this as regularly as I hope hoped but since, starting as a design apprentice at the revived Triumph motorcycles I have found less time to document what I have been doing to the car.

I need to have the front end resprayed after a previous owner has hammerited the lower half of the front panels and the sprayed one side of it green to repair that. So everything has come off the the front now, lights, grille bumpers and bonnet (which is new and will also be being sprayed).
