Default Custom exhaust shop?

FJ40 needs a new exhaust from the headers on back. 1975 means no catalyst, just a muffler. Any recommendations for an exhaust shop in Vienna, Sterling, Leesburg?

Otto, Thanks for the suggestion. I had not been thinking of them because I had always thought of them with respect to Porsche budgets not Toyota budgets but I'll call them to get an idea of price. Thanks, Jim

Call some of the muffler shops. Most can fit up an exhaust to your specs.

Vicegrip,

Exactly, a muffler shop. Which ones do you trust?

The "thermal reactor" seems to be in good shape - perhaps it was stainless. Everything after that is rusted. Could be built our of a long straight section, a bend over the axle, a right angle, a muffler and a tailpipe. But I'd rather have somebody with more experience do it. Doesn't have to be stainless - its not a 911...
