Unique, different and cool! The details of your excellent work are obscured by the darkness of the pics. I'd love more light on the rear to really see how all this came to be.

Thanks all. Will see what I can do about some better pics.

So before I get some better pics, the burns on the diffuser from the race car exhaust were too much for my OCD to handle and although quite cool, they looked a bit untidy against the rest of the car. So I decided to resin fill the hole that had been previously made in the carbon and get the shape back, before covering the whole affected area in a “heat tape” so that it still looked race car like but neat
Happy with the result.

The car is looking great, and I'm picking up lots of nice technical tidbits in the process. Thanks for sharing, and keep up the good work! (y)

Hope that it’s a useful resource for people as well as providing some level of a record for me
If there is a job someone wonders how to do, I may have done it but not posted it up so would be happy to add the details of the process to the thread

So after a lot of contemplation I have decided to go for bigger tailpipes to balance up the rear end better.
Did a quick photoshop (on PowerPoint) of what it would look like with 3.5” tips and love the look. So development continues

Like the idea but IMHO would look amazing with twin outlets

Looks fantastic! I wasn’t a fan of the old diameter, as it looks disproportionately small like on the Z8. This looks just right and love the tapered inside edge.

Like the big pipe too. Twin big pipes would probably be killer. You should do a mock up just to see. ;)
