The mild steel rear box on my SE is disintegrating rapidly. Until I can get a proper S/S exhaust, has anybody ever managed to lash together a temporary replacement using bits from other cars? I can weld something together if I can find some sort of rear box. All suggestions welcome!
I did something similar, too cheap to properly fix the blown rear silencer on my 1500, I just bought a generic silencer of roughly the same length off ebay. Chopped the rotten one out and welded in the new one. It held up fine till I switch to a Sprint engine and it passed the MOT.
Not difficult to do, as long as you get the right diameter silencer. Just make sure you got your angles right when you weld it on, so the tail pipe sits in the right position.
I believe you want 38mm, the cheapest I can find is 30 quid at the moment, which is more than I paid.
