Ok small update, but progress is progress!
I didnt know what i wanted to do for my exhaust. When its a rock crawler it doesnt matter where it goes, its gonna be in the way & get smashed. So i made something simple that would be easy to service, and replace when it gets smashed!
First off, the muffler: Gibson MWA
Let me just say, it sounds mean. Idle actually isnt that loud, but damn does it have a rumble when you rev it! I havent heard it with a tailpipe yet, but thatll come soon enough...
I bought some 3" fittings from amazon for cheap, turned out to actually be some pretty nice pieces. So i mocked it up, and realized this would actually be pretty easy to do!
This is pretty much it. I mitred the end to give it a more finished look:
Its tucked up in there pretty tight:
Built a couple exhaust hangars for the frame (one in front of muffler, one on tailpipe):
...and the finished product!
Hopefully its somewhat protected there, time will tell!
As a bonus, the doors are hung and aligned as well!
So the next day i get some free time ill begin the reassembly of them. So very close now!
