    I am not much of a welder and it's about 40-50 bucks to have it welded up right since I have the parts. Headers n Y n additional pipes are far more but will happen one of these days.

    I could clamp since I have them but I have found welding to be a better way.

    I found if you have the parts many exhaust places will install pretty cheap. I bought a muffler n tip for my offroad rig and they bent all new cat back pipe included up n over axle and welded it up for $110.

    Check out a company called Mandrel Bending Solutions.

    They sell exhaust tubing in Stainless and Aluminum in all sizes. It's cheap too. I ordered all my tubing form them for under $120

    I got all I need for now, but will look into them. I should have under $100 into having Hooker muffler and aluminized 90s and 18 inch 3.5 Stainless tips all welded in.

    I mention them because no one in my area has or is able to mandrel bend tubing.

    Cruising their site i saw they do have lots of nice pieces that could be handy in many applications. I already passed the site along to a buddy that builds racing hillclimb trucks since i know he can use some oddball exhaust configurations sometimes and they could prove helpful.

    I replenished my detailing shelf with some fresh new products. Almost all are Adams Polishes products. I have wanted to try their stuff for years and glad to now have $200 in cleaning supplies. Their Tire and Rubber cleaner is by far the best tire cleaner I have ever used. Their VRT ( Vinyl Rubber Trim ) is the best plastic and rubber dressing and protectant I have used to date. Water beads off of it and does not hang on, and it adds a dark new look without a high gloss. I hate wet high glossy tires, all that sticky silicone based stuff does is attract and hold dust. There glass sealant is incredible. I always clay and wax glass, this stuff makes wipers nearly unnecessary to have on. Water shoots right off. I am definitely a detail nut so this stuff has me quite happy.

    Their vrt is great and I love their in and out spray. I picked up McKees 37 version of the in and out to try out. I tend to go elsewhere for stuff then Adam's. They got me into detailing but tend to be expensive for what it is. My gf opens my detailing closet and just gets confused by all the stuff I have. I had to go out and buy a 5 shelve unit to hold most of it.

    I've been looking at what to replenish my stock with as well and I think I'll have to give their stuff a shot. I need something that can get water spots off. Here we have hard water so even when I dry the car while detailing it there are water spots.

    Fixed drivers mirror with some safety wire and 4 holes.







    Also got the Hooker Aerochamber and 3.5 tips on it. Not real loud, but better tone and no drone at all. Will work til headers n full exhaust happens down the line.
