Routing my exhaust 30ford coupe deuce frame

Trying to decide how to run my exhaust so I need some Idea's. I have a 30 model A coupe with a chevy 350 motor and 350 trans and Headers that dump under the car. I purchased the 2 1/2 L shaped extentions from speedway which puts the end of the pipe about two inches in front of the door.
she's sitting on a Deuce frame from So-Cal. Im running a 9" Ford rear with a buggy spring. the ford body is flat at the rear crossover and there's no room between the spring and rear end or on the sides. to get the pipes out to the rear of the car. The only thing I can think of is maby u-ing the pipes under the axle portion of the rear end but because you can see the rear end from the back will look terrible. What do you guy's think of maby some lakes style mufflers under the side of the coupe. Only problem I can see with that is it would have to dump right in front of the rear tires and the swirle [sp] might kick the exhaust back up in my window. any pictures someone else did would be very helpful but most of the journals don't seem to show it from under the back. any help would be appreciated. bill

Without a visual it's hard to see what you're dealing with. I've seen frames with pass-through holes in boxed cross members for exhaust, that keeps it up high, would something like that work?
I'm the one your momma never told you about...

need some help...

Hello Bill! I saw that you have a 30 Coupe, and could you help me with some dimensions from your Ford? I need three dimensions of the deck lid area because I am doing a model of a coupe to build a fiberglas mold. I am from Brazil and we have tons of Model A but coupes are few....
If you could help me the dimensions I need are the ones in the picture attached. The green body is the actual stage of my model.Thanks. Aurelio
