anyone that knows about welding can hook you up. get what you need at home depot and find a welder he'll do it. they love stuff like that.

Copper pipe works great. It's easy to work with. It's cheap. Lowe's Home Improvement in the plumbing supplies............

Some mufflers' pipes are a slip fit, some require a bit of work on the copper pipe. J&BWeld holds good. You can also back it up with a small screw. The result is bulletproof.
