When I got this car, it was way too quiet. It's got a 302, I wanted it to be loud! So I cut the exhaust off. Well, I got a little bored with the same sound. It was just too much, wasn't tuned, just sounded like....blah. So I reconnected the entire exhaust using clamps. Surprisingly, there aren't any leaks. I cut the old muffler off, and the catylytic converters(not legal, but who cares), and clamped a thrush glass pack on it. But, there being so much pipe, its still very quiet. After some planning, and a lack of money, I scrapped up some of the pipe I had, and rigged up my own dual side pipe. It was the most pathetic excuse for an exhaust system, but it worked. I found some pipe connected to an old muffler I had, so I cut it off, and clamped it to two glass packs. Before I had these glass packs clamped on the little bit of pipe I had left from the manifolds. I just recently had these welded on after a hastle, and many globs of J-B weld. No more leaks, and it sounds so much better. I went out and bought two sections of flex pipe. I coated it with rustoleum...just because flexpipe sucks. My friend had two chrome 4-1/2' tips that he gave to me for 2 packs of bass guitar strings. He also gave me a chain link steering wheel. So I clamped the two tips on, and had them come out of the sides, right in front of the back tires. I found some of those random holds in the frame, and used them to hang the pipes with so they didn't drag to the ground. The last time I tried to take the old exhaust system off, I ended up busting a brake line, so I took it to muffler brothers, and he cut if off after he welded up the exhaust. I just recently had my exhaust redone. I got duals all the way back with Glasspack mufflers. It sounds great. I would have rather chosen flowmasters, but I need about $150 on top of the $150 I just paid to have it done. but I'm completely satisfied with what I have now. It looks mean.
