Re: Exhaust work

That is identical to mine, except I used a bender for
flange to the bottom curve..the drop on mine is longer cause I have cast rams horns
Then the next section from there to the muffler
And another single tube from muffler to rear drop
And I also welded the mufflers.
The cross over I blew holes with the gas axe then welded a single tube in

I miged mine together

Like the hanger arrangement...will change mine next time I have to drop the system out.
Got a pic of these hanging off the car? please?

Very nice work m8, im impessed for a 1st timer...even for someone who has done it serval times before....professional job.

Re: Exhaust work

Thanks, I used high temp flat aluminum paint that I picked up at the local Advanced Auto store.. sprays weird compared to other paints.. comes out real wet almost runny with just a little.. i had the garage built about 3 years ago - spend all my free time I can in it.. i'll try and take some pics of the hangers and post as requested.. i powder coated them matte black so they are hard to see against the frame..

Re: Exhaust work

About how much did a lift like that set you back? I would love to have one of them.

Re: Exhaust work

How big is the shed m8?
The wife has given me permission to build a new workshop when she finishes her degree

Thinking about 10m x 9m

The building is 36x45.. Size is good for working, however, if I park another car in it makes it tough to work..
