Customer piping - how to?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

 

Got a question. What sort of technique or tools do you use when fabricating your exhaust or intercooler piping. I mean how do you get precise length of pieces and right angles?

 

I know dodgy exhaust shops just use a lot of mig wire but what do you do if you actually want to get a good fit?

A ruler, measuring tape, an angle grinder and some tape.

Just gotta be careful and not be in a hurry to finish

Go to supercrap and buy a digital angle finder, sort of like a digital sliding bevel, most pipe work is done by eye, i always have a piece of straight pipe about 500mm long with the ends cut square so when you test fit the bend on the car hold the straight piece of pipe up to it and you can see the direction the pipes heading, if that makes sense......
