Exhaust though body panel

How do you mount exhaust though the body panels without it vibrating against them ? like this Defender ? I have seen it several times in the UK and Ireland .

I'm thinking about putting the exhaust on my 101 through the new custom rear cross member/bumper and I cant have it slamming around .

I love the look of it. Make it more industrial, almost like a tractor. I thought about making a hole big enough so the pipe wouldn't touch the sides.. How's the real thing is done?

Younger, we pointed the lad I now became.

Some years ago Chris (from Badger) and a friend stopped at a service station here in town on their way to MAR. One had a 200Tdi, and one had a 300Tdi, both in 88s, as I recall, and both had the pipe through the bodywork. I blame that encounter for my addiction to Tdi coilers. Up until then I was satisfied with my IIa.

I think a good custom exhaust shop should be able to handle that sort of installation.

My old d2 had a side exhaust. Where the hole was cut, there was a round rubber gasket, the type you would see at the firewall to protect wires from getting spliced. I think if its installed correctly, its not going to rattle. This would mean welding a solid exhaust hanger or two from the muffler to end.

get a rubber gasket from a classic mini gas filler neck and install two flex joints on your exaust.
