After the exit pipe was cured.... It was trimmed to fit lining up with the end cap, and core. Remember the color made in the beginning.......


The other half was bonded to the exit pipe... and the exit pipe was then bonded to the end cap...


I originally planned for the exit pipe to protrude through the end cap about 4mm..... but after seeing it this way.... I liked that clean look. It would have been tough to enlarge the hole in the end cap with the right dimensions....this way it is now curing with just a dab of epoxy...... After this it will be re-inforced through the inside.....

Out came the giraffe neck for the dremel...... and after much trimming....and sanding..... It's done.... I must say... I really like the way it turned out.....



On the inside as well....and a thin "rub of epoxy in and out.....



Then on to the hanger...... First put the muffler in the "jig"....


Then put the "jig" ....in the "JIG".....


Then laid up 4 layers of CF tape..... and on the bolt on part..... 4 layers each side of a sheet of 5.7 oz twill (3K)......


Video uploading on youtube with the layup of the last tape.....

If you guys keep patting him on the back and inflating his ego, he won't be able to fit in the garage to finish!!


Now, put down the espresso and get to work! There, I have spoken.

Ja ikke... Det syntes jeg ogsaa. It has really turned out every bit as nice looking as I had pictured during the process... But it must be really nice to have a cad program and a cnc mill so you can do all this....even before the build start.....

The jig held up great.....but as one of the beefs I had with the LV...is the too flimsy CF strip hanger. I wanted this one to be stronger...with less flex. The CF tape is awesome, but offers little torsional rigidity, when applied on top of each other. When I made the pipes from the tape... I cris crossed the tape yielding good torsional stability.... but with an open strip like the hanger.... It needed more... So one layer of 5.7 oz (3K) on the inside....two on the outside.....and this time using the HTE system. I used the 1618 system on the hanger, as I could not post heat cure the whole jig..... and the 1618 is great.... but the HTE is by far stronger. Curing right now....
