Yes, those ones, the bars inside the interior going across the doors and also the one going behind the rear seats.

Well... There are lots of pictures of my car findable online... :D

Here is a picture of me in my car (and the interior is fairly visible):

This car isn't my DD, but I use it to visit meetings, drive on tracks, go round the Nürburgring and other circuits, make trips, use it as a café racer (on 4 wheels), etcetera...

Time for a new -or rather improved- exhaust system! :wink:

The CSP Python I had was nice, okay and of perfect quality, but could be improved. And because I always wanted a single tip 'Sebring' exhaust I visited some guys in the northest part of the Netherslands at EPS. They make SS custom exhaust systems...

I visited them last saturday and they had some great ideas. So we tried some of those and I decided to go for a barrel type racing muffler...

The result is astonishing: not only visual wise, but also (and most of all) sound wise!
First we checked what the possibilities were:

The end result:

That's a nice looking exhaust system, too bad it's under the car and people can't readily see it. In the 60's when Ford built the GT40, the exhaust system was developed for maximum power and nicknamed "bundle of snakes" because that's what it looked like. You too have a bundle of snakes. Good luck and happy driving.
