Intresting method to make them. Shapes were cut from flat sheets, two bits, welded together one had an adapter welded on to it. This was then conected to a high preasure water pump. This when fired up it blew the pipes into shape... Trim off the ends & you have a perfectly shaped exhaust, expasion chamber & all. Shape the end to fit the flange, fit the end can & ring a ding ding...
Very interesting Mac :)
