Finishing up this model now

Exhaust sprayed Tamiya Silver Leaf

Posted Image

Since the cat and the resonator are made of different metal, I left them silver and sprayed the rest of the piping Titanium Gold

Posted Image

I used this metal tip from Legende Miniatures, which is of sufficiently large diameter to be plausible in a forced induction setup

Posted Image

Then I made the overpipe, which goes over (or under) the rear axles

Posted Image

Posted Image

Then I finessed it into place until I was happy with where the tip was pointing

And that's pretty much it! There are a couple of things, like I need to insert the 5th rivet into each of the damper-frame links (you can see a hole but no rivet in the pic above), reattach the steering wheel, etc. But here are some finished pics.
