EP in salisbury (park tce) but any exhaust shop should be able to do it for about the same price (they just charged me for the bends plus a bit for the welds).

I didnt measure it, just gave them some photos of what I wanted.

Yep, it was mild steel. I had the option for stainless but I dont see the point.

It was not as nicely finished as your pipes. I ground the welds down and painted it.
