Where you from man? Arby's is a fast food resturant mostly known for roast beef. if they were open right now I would probably run and get one.

It can be "roughly" the size of a pencil eracer yes. Don't forget not all exhaust canisters are the same size! Plus, big canisters might not fit on certain cars do to ground clearance or not enough room under the chassis You have to be the judge. You can use just about anything, it doesn't have to be a straw. For ex. I used a Bic pen for a canister on my R33 Skyline. It's the round ones not the hexigonal shaped ones I did use a straw to stick into the end for the tip ( no paper plug ). However on the back of the canister i used the end plug from the hexigonal shaped pen and glued it. When its glued on the end it sticks out cause its round. So when you sand it flush it leaves a perfect hole right in the center so you can stick the tail pipe in and glue it!!! You have to try and see for yourself

Peace.

What happened to this one.

http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbul...=straw+exhaust

These are a little out of scale but I found better rubber tubing.

I make mine integra14's way.
It's a smaller diameter than than Integra 14 has and since its a little smaller it looks realer.

IMO I like this way better but both ways are good.

Both need a little improvement but with some work they can look cool.

IMO honoturtles's is the best method, can't find it though.

Hon, used styrene tubing.

Hon? Where did I get that! :finger:

Lightbulb Alternative for mufflers

Nice tutorial, but i have a dif way of doing it. Sorry for no pics,
though. if you dont have 2 dif size straws, you can use a utility
knife to make a slit all the way down the straw that will be the tip.
then, you can squeeze it a little and make it smaller. slide it into the uncut (larger) straw with a little glue inside the bigger one.

**TIP/NOTE**
Dont make the straw that will be the tip very much shorter than the exhaust can.
