    One big long piece before the muffler. Most excellent work! +rep

    Stainless or DOM tubing?

    It's all stainless. Even the headers. The pipe and the muffler / silencer will all get polished up to a nice shine later on.

    Obviously the white protective covering on the silencer needs to be removed before I fire her up again

    And why am I showing to you now? I'm just a big tease.... :)

    The panels came pre louvered from Marlin, but needed trimming for length as it was supplied over long, and it needed notching to fit the chassis.

    And of course the hole for the exhaust needed to be measured up cut, and then rivnuts set into it for the stainless exhaust trim.
