How does it compare in places out of the sun as Red is notorious for fading in UV

I don't think it's a different colour, just different degree of UV fade?

I ended up googling paint codes and its the only red used on an 85 fb sunrise red...its fine the whole car will probably get painted away depending on how the mechanical bits go.
The underside is very nice with all the stickers intact and no rust like the gold 1...if anybody wants the gold bonnet just say its free...go going to tip soon..Tim didnt want it...where the bolts go in for hinges 2 are useable rest is rotted out. Rust issue bonnet free!

Ah, good to know Tim's added that one to his spares collection, rather than being "lost" somewhere  :13:

No choke at all and running at 1500rpm...albeit with blow at header end..
 suspect vacuum leaks fair few pipes crudly plugged around air cleaner and carb...its loud...brap brap brap. Theres no flange at either header end or start of centre sections and prior clamps real tight that has ovalised, absolute pig to get the new reducer pipe on and the headers back on the studs...will need a bit more work possibly a flexi..

Vac leaks won't cause fast idle but will cause rough idle.  get the motor warm then turn the idle speed dpwn to about 900 rpm. Turn the mixture screw until the motor almost dies then rotate back 3/4 turn. That's a baseline then you can fine tune it back to around 750 rpm when you've cleaned the carb and chased any vac leaks.

As for exhaust, a lot of aftermarket header systems were slip on joints and clamps. I think Doulble S did a system with flanges IIRC. In fact, if you contact Double S, they will still supply you with that system today.

Thanks Dave...ill report back gonna be a few days b4 get on it again...work and trackday prep on Westory And Fd depend on weather...ref exhaust theres a 200mm gap between slip joint of head 50mm and start of middle silencer..pipes have ovalised from exhaust u clamps so difficult to get a seal with the st/st 1 i had made...so next plan is remove and redo in mild x2 extenders welded with slip joint in middle on fresh round steel.
