    Here is the muffler insert, one down, only 3 to go, I could not find the tubing I needed in the proper dimensions so I bit the bullet and made it from a solid 1 inch round aluminum, a bit time consuming , but this airplane has been just that time consuming

    Older beauty just takes longer to get the "make up" on. That's all. At least it does not "horde" the bathroom! :laughing:

  7. I did similar for an engine a few years ago, I matched the exit size to the entrance and drilled some holes to bounce the sound around. With this muffler, in my case, the exhaust was dead silent. Mine was not made with anywhere near the precision yours is but it worked.
