Layed it out ,buddy cut it out with a CNC router, ran it thru the slip roller you see in pic , ran the glue gun ( tig the caps, mig'd the snout & long seam) And their she be, it's a Walker muffler, Hedman tube ( Summit Racing). It is a TIME CONSUMING project ,as all know I'm sure ,originals where crease flanged ,bent & crimped , I can't replicate that so it's all welded. To expensive I'm sure ,if I put a price on them, but well see.

Sams is having them reproduced and i am scared to ask what he wants cause we all know he has no fear of putting a number on anything.

I remember Sam talking about reproducing them,said there was no money to be made because of all the cost involved in making them for all that you could sell

If sam had 10,000 made I bet the cost would be $100 for us.   But then again how will he sell that many...

There is a place near Cleveland OH called Stainless Steel works ( I believe) they specialize in SS custom made exhaust for ANYTHING. I see the are making a SS muffler for the old Simplicity powermax 9020 (etc) offering them on Ebay. I know totally different set-up. But bet you they could make the LF ones. Hey100 or so guys looking for em should bring the price down.
