so i realized the exhaust i had was a single piece i dont know why exhaust shops do this crap...



and when i took it off the car, i already had cut it in two pieces....



too long, to put in, and to service... needed to add flanges...



ebay is a good source.

all you need is a angle grinder with a cutting wheel, an abrasive wheel, and a MIG welder.... If you can borrow a MIG, do it, learn. Save money....

best way to cut a pipe, with a grinder, is to clamp it. it serves as a guide, even when you use the abrasive disc to remove edges..



first piece is done.. did not put the process of welding, that is boring..

If you see, i also did the tail pipe...





use the abrasive wheel to smooth it out and to prepare for welding.



then weld...



i used barbeque paint to protect the welds...

enjoy....

I'm curious, what are you protecting the welds from? Rust/corrosion?

I'm about to weld a new muffler on one of my vehicles, but hadn't even thought that the welds would need protection.

but the clamp is a good idea. i'll remember that when I do mine.

Good tip with the clamp! I wonít have any time to get my welder out this weekend but maybe this upcoming week Iíll get it out of my shed and start working on some exhaust.
