How To: Cheap exhaust on any vehicle??
So, in the process of rebuilding several trucks, we're facing a critical juncture; exhaust rebuilding. These are trucks for which "factory" exhaust pipes are no longer available...they have good exhaust manifolds, and about 1" of good tube on the end of the manifolds, but after that, it's rust-o-rama. So the question is: what is the best way to home fab exhaust (this is not a trail vehicle or anything...). As I see it, we have a few options. 1: Buy all the pre-bent angle pieces and straight pieces and weld'em up...but that looks to be pretty expensive. Absent a tube bender, we can't really bend our own, so 2: Buy that corrugated "bend it yourself" tube and make our own bends, but does that really hold up? 3 would be to take the trucks to a muffler shop, but that sounds too expensive. So...any suggestions?
