At the request of the customer we realized the exhaust as at the time.
Nevertheless we used modern tools, scanning (hexagon arm) then redesigned in CAD the exhaust by respecting the information that we had in our possession (photos, plans of times…).
Indeed, the proximity of the chassis tubes with the engine imposes a great rigor in the spatial position of the exhaust tubes.
The design of the exhaust system led to a specific tooling that allowed to materialize the tubes in space.
Starting from 10/10th thick steel sheets, we made the specific tubes according to the MATRA plans.
In the bending of the tubes, we used a technique of the time:
it consists in filling and packing foundry sand in the tube then plugging it at the ends.
Then the tube is heated with a flashlight and bent according to specific templates. The tubes are then brought back into conformity in terms of circularity, then polished with an abrasive wheel.
This mixture of period and modern techniques is the only way to achieve this exceptional work.
