1972 280se 4.5 custom exhaust

Hi , here are some pics of my car and
my new custom build rear muffler made out of stainless steel.
The other pipes made out of stainless steel are coming soon.
I already put a pertronix ignitor II and flamethrower II coil in.
The car runs awesome now! Lots of power anytime I put the pedal down.
I have also installed a rpm gauge from a 300sel 6.3 which i like more than the original clock.

So did you import that car from the US? Nice ride, nice muffler!

I'd love to see a pic of this. Was it difficult to wire it up?

yes, i sold my focus svt this summer and bought two 280se 4.5, one 220seb coupé and one 280sec coupé in the states
and shipped them here to germany.

the wiring of the 6.3 rpm gauge is very easy.
green wire goes to the negative terminal of the coil
and red wire goes to (i hope this is translated right) "ignition switched positive".

Great looking exhaust. What size outlets are those (how many inches or cm)?
