    New to the forum and building a 40 ford pickup myself. Must say you made it very easy for me to figure out small details. I will keep following this until it's done!

    Welcome to the forum ! Feel free to ask any questions. I did a lot of redo's because I didn't like the results. I also wasted some money. Start a build thread and show us what you've got !

    I agree, that is so much more than a simple pipe.
    Did your shop do that work? Is it baffled inside??

    Yes it has baffles or maybe more like deflecting scoops at each inlet. We didn't do the work, a shop in New Zealand did them. Sometimes its easier and faster to let someone who has done them a few times before have the work.
    This gives me and idea for my tail pipes on my Ford.

    That pipe clearly would have been easier (and cheaper) to have welded it.

    Nice attention to detail.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    Yup it would have been, but than we've have just another after market looking piece of un-authentic crap. We build these planes the way they were back in the day to the correct specks . Its just like cars you can walk up to a car and see all the after market stuff on them and the owner claims its original. Its either right or its wrong.

    Good on you for the authenticity. I did Civil War reenacting for many years, and made it a point to stay away from the guys who came with tents, coolers and sleeping bags. In some endeavors, authenticity counts.

    Was the New Zealand company a one man business in Auckland run by Mike Roberts ? I think he calls his business Hammerworks and does mostly restoration of early aircraft and racing car pieces. A very clever and talented guy.
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.
