Picture 1 shows the passenger pipe in the car. My friend Clayton made some flanges so I won't have any muffler clamps. Everything will bolt up with header gaskets. I placed the mufflers where I wanted them in the chassis. Then I made patterns to get the fromt pipes to the mufflers.

I started my exhaust with some straight 2 1/4" tubing and some J Bends. I made some templates on my CAD system to help making the angle cuts. I did mock it up with cardboard first to make sure it would fit. Then I tack welded the pieces together.

Later I masked the rotor with the high temp tape that came with the kit. Then sprayed the powder on and put it in the oven. Picture 3 shows the results.

I decided to use the Powder Coat gun I got for Christmas a couple of years ago from my wife. Picture 1 show's what I started with. I wire brushed the spindle and caliper bracket to remove the surface rust and cleaned it with lacquer thinner. I sprayed the powder on and let bake for 20 minutes in the oven at 400°. Picture 3 shows the parts back on the car.
