100% stainless steel T-bolt clamps... $5
100% Stainless Steel T-Bolt Clamps - PartsSystems

These will last longer than a few years. Aircraft, race cars, fleet trucks, and motorcycles use them. They don't corrode or rust and the things last.

I made a custom GT3 Zork once; very difficult due to space limitations and very expensive as well. It doubled the price if memory serves. Many spacial challenges to get it right. The GT3 tailpipes on my mufflers have a slip joint at the dual split so you can level the 2 pipes perfectly. There is not enough room for that with a zork.
