Put the engine back in today so I could make a start on the exhaust. I didn't manage to finish it but just working out how to fit the pipes in is more than 50% of the work. Finished the centre and rear box plus the bypass valve and collector pipework. Just the downpipes to do which required me ordering some bits.

This was the first fitting of the engine with the steering all connected and I can confirm it hits on the manifold!!! bummer. It is all fixable though but will require modifying the top joint area to make more room.
