    Thanks Joe - I've looked, and I am very certain it does have the original headers, and I have also seen the tubes leading to the headers on each side.

    Got it, I think you can simply replace the headers.

    Rod Stewart at Sant Agata in 1988 looking at a LHD Downdraft to keep in the South of France, at this time he already had another RHD Downdraft which he kept in the UK, over his left shoulder is Enzo Moruzzi of Lamborghini SpA.

    Just some slight oxidation on the rear metal support brackets which will easily polish out. Otherwise, they are mint.

    i think you simplye can replace swiss (emission friendly but poor performance) manifolds with euro ones and you are all set
    your car's power should benefit from this upgrade to

    Yes or no, on paint protection film (PPF)? Looking for feedback on a car after full restoration. Thanks

    Not a fan. I've skipped it for reasons of cost, and all its potential problems such as dulling of the paint's polished finish, wear/lifting/wrinkling/bubbling/yellowing after a few years, and damaging paint adhesion problems when you need to remove it for replacement. All things considered I don't think PPF belongs on restored classic cars. I can repaint anytime.

    Agreed. I had it applied to my 488 GTB that I ordered new (I’ve since sold), and I regretted it, basically for all the reasons Joe mentioned. If you really feel you must, than just apply it to the most vulnerable spots and don’t waste your money on the whole car.
