|V305||Take a look at this Make your own muffler, this stainless muffler looks interesting|

its amazing what u can do with powder coating these days
|02-03-2012 08:53 AM|
Great! My guy didn't offer that super temp stuff. Regardless, standard powder holds up great on everything but the headers and if your guy has access to the hot stuff, so mch the better. I personally like the ceramic-metallic look on the headers anyway.

this is not true they actually make a powder that can go right on the headers, the last set of turbo headers i built for somone the guy powder coated them himself and they have held up perfectly for a year now

Wonder how they will sound on a small truck?
good job on them though....they look cool....

great job on the mufflers. Looks like you like the VW engine. I was checking out your website and man, I dig the firewall stamping! Also the stainless work. Wish I had you around back when we opened our catering business!

Woooo MOMMA! That steer'n wheel looks kinda purdy!

I managed to gather up alot of plate that had the holes cut, and pipe welded in out of the scrap in our welding class.
Not sure what kind of steel it is, not too heavy, looks a little bit thicker than mild steel. Have enough to make two very narrow mufflers out of it.
I wouldn't worry about rust either, its going to take a long time for anything more than sheetmetal to rust through too horrible. Just paint it with some Wal-Mart header paint and it shouldn't get too bad.
That stuff actually sticks also, worked for about two years on a log truck with crappy, mis-matched mufflers with no prep work at all. Didn't burn off.

|Chopt 48||ok, I see that now, It is still what I would attempt if I was trying to buiild my own the first go. I think it would be a lot easir to build new ones than mess with used ones. All the metal shouldn't cost more than a kingsized double quarterpounder meal. Maybe free if you hunt around a bit.|

Wow, Walt, that is world class work there. I'd think you outdid what you couldn't buy.
To the guys who want to cut the mufflers apart=
I'd attempt something like what Klatt 89 is doing before attempting to cut stock mufflers apart. Thanks for the heads up Brian
Those look a bit on the heavy side but they should last a long time.
Moc one up out of carboard an see what it would look like and go from there.
you can probably pick up scrap but new sheet metal at a local machine shop or a local scrap yard. Cut, fit and low buck mufflers that may or may not mufflle.

Thanks. I've had to build just about evrything on this project. It's the only way to truely keep the build cost down.

|weirdbeard||Man I wish I had time to make some awesome mufflers like that. I don't think mine would look that nice though. That is nice work.|
|02-23-2007 04:33 PM|
looks like a lot of time and fabrication there... looks like EXCELLENT work.
