    Hi All,

    Does anyone have a pic showing a good way to run the driver's side exhaust on this car? Engine is flathead with cast Fenton headers, and I have the Red's Headers extension pipes for a convertible.

    Thanks,

    Dino

    My experience with Fentons and Red's extensions is that everything connects and fits , out of the box....

    Ps; Are you using Red's extensions , made for Fentons, or for Red's tubular headers ? The ones for Fentons are connected using 2 bolt flanges....Extensions for tube headers are "slip-on" extensions.

    They are for Fentons. They have the two bolt flanges and match the cast Fenton flanges perfectly.

    I just got off the phone with Jim at Red's Headers, who informed me that they've never made extensions for a convertible with Fentons, and doesn't believe they will work. I bought these things five or six years ago and they've been on the shelf ever since, but I can't remember if I bought them directly from Red's. They do have the oval Red's tags welded on. I told Jim I would email the part numbers off them tomorrow.
