Have got around to replacing the exhaust damaged on the Birdsville trip last year. It had a slight blow on the center muffler but decided to go stainless right through. After obtaining a few over the top prices I found a very competitive quote for the complete system supplied and fitted. Mick and his wife Melinda run a professional exhaust shop called Men @ Work in Capalaba, Brisbane. (07) 3823 1955 I highly recommend them for any custom exhaust work you may need.

Here are a few pictures including one of a heat shield I asked them to fit to keep my poly water tank cool.

Derek.
That looks to be a very nice set up.
Thing is, it still looks as if it is swage formed, not constant diam., mandrel bent?
I am looking to get a 65mm. front to back for the L/C I have recently put a low boost turbo on.
Not concerned about s/s, just want a mandrel bent.
Do they do this sort of installation?
cheers furph

They make up extractors so give them a ring.

I just went for the straight through pipe when the rear muffler got squashed in the Kimberley.

Cheers
Andrew who has an exhaust leak to fix next week.

If you want a good mandrel bent system give Beaudesert Exhausts a ring. If you're not in Bris they can ship a kit to you.

i've got one of the 3" beaudesert exhaust systems on my cruiser, they're not cheap at $1100 fitted, which is why i asked how much dereks system was. i'm pretty happy with my system and would go the same way again next time.

Also consider the Vortex muffler system...some forum members have reported improved economy of 2l/100km which seems hard to believe, but I trust their record keeping...
