Nothing too fancy, guys. No snow, so i have a little extra time w/ some garbage parts, so figure'd I would fashion a stack for the 110. Now, it is just an extension off of the stock muffler. She sounds pretty nice, too. There. My contribution for today. :wave:

Nice. How close is the stack to the hood?

Stack looks good, but looks a little close to the hood.Be careful it dosn't melt your hood.

Looks good but like the other guys mentioned how close is it to the hood? It almost looks like it is touching in the pics, I don't think the heat would do much to fiberglass but if it is touching or close to touching and it rubs, it is going to leave a mark.

It is almost an inch from the hood. No issues with the heat. Then again, it has not been field tested yet. I can very easily remove it if for some reason it becomes troublesome. Just some old copper pipe, couple of 90's and a few clamps with some 1,200 degree stove paint, and there you are!

Thought that was copper. Should have polished it. Not everyone has a copper stack.

Oooh, polished copper stack, talk about a new way to bling your gt. It would almost be like a sophisticated industrialized look.

Fellas. It won't be too hard to strip off the paint and polish it up. Heck, no problem at all. And I did think about doing that initially. Can you believe it? The wife said it would look stupid bare copper. So I listened to her, ( I know, I know.) and went and bought the paint. She told me it looks so much better now. Humph!

When you do the full restore, you could get all your hardware copper clad. Lift button, bolts, the works. Be one of a kind then.

I know, I know. Then it wouldn't be OEM.

Cool looking stack, black or copper it looks nice.

You might want to cut that last 90 so the bottom is shorter than the top for water. 20-30 degrees should do it.

Is it braced? I'd think the weight would break the stock exhaust pipe out of the muffler. It does look good though.

Not yet. Am at my apartment in town and will not be home for 7 days. Still work in progress. Just something to fiddle around with. Thanks for the feedback.
