My car had single exhaust so I didn't have one oem muffler hanger for to mount when I installed the dual exhaust system.

I asked a company to make me two new when they had some time over............................... that was 4 weeks ago and they didn't even start on them, so I bought some material and made them myself.

I see you're pretty serious about your hangers...
You think you have used a thick enough material? Is that 2.5mm?

It's 3 mm Herman - the oem one was 1/8" (3,15mm), and yes, it will work out just fine - I had to use a pipe extension on the vise to bend the hangers.

I want to have the oem look without all the rust pittings. The original one was severly rusted out, but still held on for all those years. There will also be new balata belt for a good look and function.

For some reason, the clamp in the original one acted like a sacrificial anode and it had rusted very thin, practiaclly broke into pieces when I tried to demount it. The hanger itself had very much surface rust, but, you're right Sid - it will still work for many years. It would not please me to have one nice and one bad.

Made the holes and the final touch on my hangers. Now they will be primed and painted silver - there's no surface treatment company close to my Place.

Nice jig setup. I was wondering how you were going to cut those holes. Now I know.

Thanks' for the comments friends! I wish that it will inspire and give hope for those that don't find a particular part.

Ron, Yep, that is why he is called the Wizard. He is completely consumed with 1960 Chrysler. And has magic hands!

Wiz, You do excellent work. I wish there was someone close by that could do that well. I have a friend that can fix almost anything that is possible to fix, but He won't work on anything but his own stuff. He hates to charge anyone for the time it takes in doing so. Personally, I would gladly pay for that time because I know it would be done right...............................MO

Not sure anyone would want to pay to do them like that (by hand)

Just to use my labour rate, assuming Wiz only worked for 8 hours/ day, that = AU$1840,00/ per hanger

If anyone is interested in paying that much for them, please shoot me a line and I will sort it out

Hey Wiz, might have a business proposition for you
