The mid muffler is a magnaflow straight through x and the rears are pypes. 71277432_2276897419237510_1592322145323581440_o.jpg 71242702_2276897402570845_4337929347055747072_o.jpg 70605107_2276897422570843_8721995559222640640_o.jpg

        Very sweet! I wish my 97 had paint like that. The shops around here wont do completes because they say it takes too much time away from the collision stuff.

        Car looks great, and I bet it sounds even better. Getting custom bent exhaust is hard to find, especially a shop that can and would want to do it. Currently finding this for my car.

        Start with a kit and then get individual pre bent mandrel parts then have a good exhaust shop weld it together

          That's the best job I'v seen yet of tucking a 2.5" system in tight under the car. I built a heat shield for my gas tank and found it pretty hard to get my 2.5 SS true benz pipes up tight in the cavity. If you want it tight under the car and a heat shield of sorts, go with the 2.25" pipes. They would be much easier to fit under the gas tank and enough for a heat shield or if not just plain old more air space between pipe and tank. Ethanol gas looses its ethanol content quickly when heated. Heres what my heat shield fab job looks like...

          20200919_163600.jpg used this only had time for one coat should do more I like it would help on any paint bring depth to the paint. It also makes cleaning in the future easier.Next time I'll probably do the 6h if there's.

          Thanks Slowmkviii! I heard the paint has to be in great condition, free of any oxidation etc for the ceramic to bond well with the paint. Yes I heard/saw videos where the dirt just rinses off with just a hose.

          Thanks xtriggerman! WOW, what an exhaust system! Brilliant write up! Amazing work! Thanks for putting in the links as well. To get this custom done in Canada would be $800 easy. it would be worth it to buy, ship and then have installed here, still saying a lot.
