Default Exhaust?

Anybody got a set of MKII carrier exhaust boxes for sale.
I'm thinking of getting a set made out of stainless to stop the upright condensation corrosion problem.
Anybody done this before?

hi barry, I havernt made any as yet but I fitted a couple of NOS ones and it was interesting to note that there are two small holes about 1/8" from memory in each pipe at the bottom of the pipes just before they bend upwards from underneath the carrier to allow for water drainage. I am also interested in getting a set made, I think exhausts are all the same on all Mk's of carrier ?.

Clives Hughes had a number of sets made up in stainless steel about 5 or 6 years ago but they are long gone.

if i had one to work from i could get some made up no sweat, a pal of mine builds bike engined caterham's he has a full custom exhaust making outfit he will be doing my tanks when the time comes, but if I had an exhaust which could be sacrificed then i could give it to him to use as a pattern, iam sure the left and right cans are both the same its the top drop over pipes that are different ?
