Welded all the way around the V Clamps. My welding buddy gave me a few pointers on how to set the backpurge up. There was a ring of penetration and mostly clean on the insides. Outside had some decent beads but I still need to do better. HAZ was pretty tight and consistent.

Thanks Charles - I might do a 3" exhaust down the road and will fix all my mistakes.

Here is the section that will go over the axle - tacked for now - hoping to final burn it later today.

Have to figure out how to get it to exit out of the inside frame.

Added a little Rover chrome back to the tub. The smaller pieces I had media blasted and re-galvanized. The 2 big top rail pieces I had the pant stripped and cleaned them up.

Just saw a clip from that 4x4 offroad fab show on spike. When he was welding tubes he taped the ends and had an inert gas being pumped into the tube so that when he was welding there would be less(?) to no containment in the weld of the interior. Was the latest episode on the website.

My welder buddy has been giving me tips on how to back purge to prevent sugar on the inside. I think my second regulator isn't working right as I thought the setup was correct but wasn't getting enough argon flowed thru. Down the road I will redo this exhaust in 3" and try and correct all my mistakes.

LULZ - you are awesome! I wouldn't be able to see your mistakes even if you were pointing at them for me

Truck is coming along so nicely - one of my favorite threads/builds.

Finally got the exhaust done. Well still need to clean the end and attached one more exhaust hanger.

The tailpipe was a bugger - 8 pieces and lots of bends. Had to cut welds and refit some pieces a few times.

Attached to the truck. I fused the last few sections instead of using filler.

Looking good - would like to see your full exhaust routing. Specifically how you worked around the front shaft

It's a little tight in one spot but overall just used to 90* pipes. I can try and get some pics of the exhaust routing from underneath.

Maybe I missed it, but did you buy pre-bent sections and piece it together?

Yes - not sure if I mentioned it - tubes were mandrel bent sections most of them from Vibrant. Pretty good product for the price - most of it was bought at Summit. My local PepBoys carry it too but more expensive. Then cut to fit and prepped the edges for the particular bend.

Started doing some work on the tub. This thing needs some work! Pulled the floor over the weekend. The lip that attaches to the floor is corroded where all the steel cross pieces attached. There also a vertical support that attached but there is no way to rebuild them. So I am cutting those to clean metal and then welding them to the sides. Also making drain holes in then bottoms of the vertical supports.

I took a before pic but must have deleted it. So here is the after - I have 7 more of these to do

Also filling in all the holes from the old seats and galvy strips.
