The Austin Mangler

Just finished making the custom headers for the Austin Mangler owned by David Webber of Austin, Texas. All tubing was cut from sections then fully TIG welded while back purging the insides for a smooth weld. This is a 600 plus horse power blown small block Model A Sedan, look for it on the streets of Austin. Can Pipeworx help you with your custom exhaust needs?

Lightweight E-Type Chromoly Cage

This is a custom FIA legal chromoly cage I built for the aluminum bodied Jaguar E-type replica. All attachment points were hand fit for a tight joint then TIG welded. I made custom brackets to insert inside the inner structural chambers of the car so the outer plates would have a solid foundation in which to bolt.

Skip's '51 Chevy 5 Window Truck

I did some extensive inner fender well modifications for Skip's '51 5 window Chevrolet truck. He wanted the inner fenders to fit around these equal length stainless headers. I carried the stock reveal line through the bubbles to make them look like they came from the factory stamped that way. The reverse curve sections that blend the outward bubble to the stock inner fenders were definitely the hardest part.

Triumph T120R Photoshoot 

Our friend and professional photographer, Douglas Saylor, of dougsaylor.smugmug.com, came over to shoot the custom Triumph we built.  Doug did an amazing job capturing all the details of the bike under non-ideal conditions and the shots came out spectacular.  Thank you Doug for the photos and Paul Gresovic for bringing the bike over in one piece, he puts the miles down on the Triumph, so forgive some imperfections.

Custom Vehicle Support Stands

These custom stands are one of the safest ways to support your vehicle off the ground while keeping the suspenision loaded.  The stands are able to support your vehicle and slide across the floor while cycling an air bagged suspension system to dial in the sensors for ride height.  The stands are made from 1/4" waterjet cut hot rolled steel plate and come with four different bolt patterns cut into each one.  They come in standard or metric and four, five or six lug, your choice.  I ship the stands flat to save on shipping cost and are easily assembled on a flat surface as they have locator tabs built in for alignment before welding.  Either the TIG or MIG process is adequate for assembly.  Cost is $400 per pair or $750 for a full set of four, prices do not include shipping so contact us for a quote.
