Default Rear Dom silencer is finished!!!

I've successfully designed a tasteful way of silencing this loud beast of a pipe

Wow, that look very nice, actually.

I personally like how you made the silencer look integrated to the rest of the pipe.

Which version of the pipe is this? And which silencer did you user to mount up to your pipe?

Thanks!
It's a rear dom clone. I wasn't sure it was gonna work so cutting into a real rear dom wasn't an option!
I don't see why it woun't work on the the real deal though.
I'm using the DDM silencer.

Wow nice work! looks very professional. How did you attach it? Looks like very clean spot-welds.

A little 'how to' guide wouldn't go amiss.

Rite on man!
They are rivets.
Here's how I did it for you guys
Here's my write up:
Buy a silencer from DDM and drill out the factory rivets and disassemble it.
It should look like this.

Lightly tap the silencer housing on the end of your rear dom to gauge where the end of the silencer is going to be and cut and fit.
It should look like this.

Next mark your mounting holes on your rear dom and drill them.
I made 6 for a strong fit. Measure about 1/4 up from the holes you drilled for the bottom mount and Swiss cheese the end of your rear dom.
I used a drill press. Use a cobalt drill bit.
This is the most time consuming part. After your done it should look like this.

Wrap the packing around the holes.
Since the pipe is tapered it won't wrap around and cover them all.
Cut a triangle sliver out of your 2nd piece of packing and tape it tight over the holes.
Here's a pic.

Pop rivet it all up, I used 3/16 rivets

Well done, now you can sell this one and do up a Real Dominator.

With the cractsman ship you did in modding and fabricating, I would have no problem sending one of my Dom pipes for you to mod!

Here's my write up:...
Again awesome work, and thanks for the write up and detailed internal pics!

Have you run the pipe much since doing the mod? Is there a noticeable performance drop?

Thanks bro.
My pinion bolt is broken. I ordered a new one and it should be here next week. Then I'll be able to actually test drive it.
I hate waiting days for such a small part!
