    What I use is aluminum rod in 3/16 and 1/4 (measures out at .22 and .26) available at some hardware stores. Paint inside the end of the tips flat black or you can grind a little bit out of the tips if your careful.

    Now you've got it! Also key word CUSTOM TRUCKS. Alot of them with the big stacks are show trucks that u don't have to listen to roar all day, hence the phrase "limited bobtail", "limited working truck"

    I'm sorry, thought I was helping, guess not! And the pen is not used for an elbow, just a reducer between the stack and the elbow., and u still cannot just slide a 8-10" pipe over a 5"  and call it done, half of the exhaust (and smoke) will come out of the bottom!

    I started going to the drag races aruond 10 yrs old or mid 60's. All the local tracks by then were starting to running M/P classes. Anything that wouldn't pass tech to run s/s got put into modified production. There were some wild cars, slow by today's standards, but alot of fun to watch back then!

    Good sight. Gassers have always been cool, but I never here any mention of the old MODIFIED PRODUCTION class. Stock w/b, stock sheetmetal, carbs, 4-speeds, and 10,000 rpm lauches! Kind of a middle ground between superstocks and gassers. prelude to the early prostockers

    Pipe reducers are as close as your desk drawer, the end of a cheap ink pen, cut off where u need it. They have to fit together tight or u have one heck of an exhaust leak!  I do my stack bends on a heavy sheet metal break, gives a much more realistic bend. Still have to sand and polish these.A lot of trucks use under cab mufflers, ck out berubes.com or iowa 80.com in the exhaust section.

    Think the cars are scary, google " autonomuos trucks"!! Think about 80,000 lbs coming up in your rearview mirror at a stoplight!!

    Chris, good luck! Here's a site that might interest you, truckersreport.com  I've been out of trucking for quite a while, but I still look at this site everyday, a forum for just about anything trucker related!

  15. signguy2108 added a post in a topic An apology   

    Maybe their problem is the car and the background look way too real. I say great job on the '62 and  your photography!!  Oh, and I thought at first it was my neighbors car except his has fender skirts and I know thats not his wife... I see no need to apologize for anything!
