I own a 1970 280 SEL(w108) and have been wanting to replace or repair my rusty and leaky exhaust. The exhaust pipes have rust from front to back. The exhaust is leaking thru a small crack towards the middle of the car. What is the best approach? I'm looking first to eliminate the exhaust leak but also thinking about replacing the whole exhaust if cost is low. What am I looking at as far as cost? What are the do's and don'ts? Is it smart to keep the exhaust pipes the same diameter or can the diameter be larger for better performance?
Can I find good, clean and rust free exhuast pipes/mufflers for my car thru the classic center or junkyard. Is going thru a muffler shop a better idea?
Need to repair or replace soon..please advise
