Well, the high temp paint is now in the drying process. All that is left of the baffle are little tiny pieces on my garage floor.
I highly recommend this project as a much more expensive, much more difficult and potentially much uglier alternative to Brian's fancy schmancy stainless steel dump pipe.
Welder $650
Welding Accessories $100
Misc Grinding Accessories $50
Baffle Removal Time 2 Hours
Practice Welding 4 Hours
Weld Prep Time 1 hour
Actual Welding Time 5 minutes
Grinding time to make it look acceptable 4 Hours
or
You could spend $60 on a high quality dump pipe...
However,
Spending time understanding the dirty nasty innards of your mechincal baby... Priceless

Oh well... why spend $60 bucks and 15 minutes when you can spend a Grand and the whole weekend instead!!!
