Managed to find some more time today. If only I didn’t have to work for a living, my project would have been finished years ago!

Once again life has been getting in the way of the build. However I’ve managed to get the exhaust fabrication finished. Just a bit of tidying up on the welds to do.

I totally understand trying to find time to work on the build. I think we both started our XV builds around the same time. Exhaust looks great ! Keep up the good work.

Thanks. Yes time is precious and difficult to find.

Not sure whether to drill the bracket more, it has tapped holes to allow the reposition of the rear-set. I’m thinking multiple holes to provide a perforated look. Alternatively I might slice the bracket vertically, making it slimmer looking. Not sure.

The brackets don’t look bulky to me- if anything I’d keep them that size for the extra stiffness. But that’s just me. Your exhaust turned out beautiful by the way!

Thanks. Yeah, I’m in two minds, the extra stiffness is something I had in mind, maybe drilling them will make them look better. I’m pleased with the exhaust, some more tidying up to do on it, thanks for your comments.
