having been inspired by green monsters 696 undertail exhaust, i am considering doing it. my wife loves her monster, but hates the big exhaust in the sides. she likes the undertail exhaust like my ducs.
here is the question:
has anyone done it on a 695?
buy misc prebent tube? or just have the pipe fabbed at a custom shop?

i have welded fine before, never exhaust tubing, but doesnt seem any worse than anything else. my bigger concern is i dont have a tubing bender, so i would have to buy misc pre-bent tubes somewhere and piece it all together, or maybe have a custom shop fab something up. not sure what that would cost tho

Use .065" SS prebent tubing and cut and fit from there. It isn't easy or cheap.
Make sure you, or a friend can TIG weld.

my thought is it would be easier to use steel then have it coated. SS would be nice, but i dont have the means to weld it, and is also more $$

With the amount of cutting and welding you're going to have to do, SS would be better. But, a TIG welder can do both and if you haven't welded SS before, it doesn't take much to learn
