Re: Welding Exhaust Systems
If you don't have the exhaust system it may be more prudent to have a Muffler Shop do it. The shop I took my 68 Camaro to charged $568.00 parts/labor, from the header collector out the back 69 Z28 Style. Cost included SS Magnaflow mufflers, 2.25" alum pipe, chrome tips.
Fast forward. Three years later I purchased a '56 Chevy Coupe with a Muncie and 3.70 posi. Decided to install a TKO600. TKO Shifter is center mounted. Over the decades the PO's made the side shifter hole larger and larger. Purchased a Lincoln Pro Mig 180, cart, argon/co2 bottle= $900.00. Used the mig once to patch the hole (6" x 12") one year ago. Haven't needed a mig since. So.. it cost me $900 to patch a hole. Yes, I still have a 1X used mig system.
BTW, mig with gas is the best way to go. Kinda like golf....practice makes perfect.
