Or it's a matter of cutting the ends back & welding the appropriate sized ends on?
The tubes themselves have a woven outer as you can see, but inside there's a series of interlinked/overlapping ring sections that allow some flexibility. I have a couple of baffles that will fit with a little modding, and I've yet to determine if the tubes should be secured somewhere by the foot-peg mounting plates via P clamps or by a bar/rod to a thread welded onto the pipe ends?
I'd still like to get this setup built. Wish I'd bought a welding kit when I was earning...
I'd be interested to know more about the VW muffler baffles people talk about too.
