Still searching for some info on the exhaust System. Anyone?

As I mentioned before, I'm guessing on a straight cylindrical Silencer, mounted somewhere inboard of the left Fuel tank.

I think its a Y-pipe under the the Oil Pan, leading to a straight (but angled downward) exhaust pipe (straight into the Silencer).

After the Silencer, I have no idea how short/long the Tailpipe is or where it exits.

I have yet to decide if I will include exhaust pipes, since they will be very narrow pipes at this scale, with many sections/parts (because of all the bends and twists)
and subsequently hard to build out of paper.

I would like to at least include a Muffler though, so I'd really like to see a photo of that.

I don't know if Chev is different than Ford, but I'll look at either!...?

[Older photo...still got the Chevy Hitch equipment...]

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I have been preoccupied with the build itself.
I'm also busy on my own Forums, and I have been posting updates there.

let me recap a little bit...

Engine and Transmission installed...




...
With no other help, I decided to do a basic exhaust...but this will be an optional detail since it may not be very accurate.
And, it is difficult to build at this scale.



...
With the Chassis almost complete, I set about designing the internal supports and the Underfloor.



...
Then I started work on the Body...assembling many of the smaller surface layers and details before the final assembly.



...
Assembled body on the frame...things are looking good now!

Time to sort out the front clip...had to redesign that as well!
using the wrong reference materials, I had created a Chevy doghouse, not the Ford!
Quite a bit of difference in the designs.



...
and a Radiator (almost forgot that!)



...
and, one of the trickiest parts, the front Fenders!



and I installed the Roof Tarpaulin



...
lastly, the details up front (bumper, tow cable parts, headlamps, etc)



...
and thats about it...except for some final details, like side view mirrors*.
*another builder option item since it will require the use of outside materials.

but I do need to add some Markings.
And this is where I have run into a problem.
I have yet to confirm actual markings on a WW2 Gun Tractor like this.
I'd like to do something Canadian, if possible.

Can anyone help?
