Any good custom mandrel bending exhaust shops in the area?

It's been a little hard to work out times with Clayton and wanted to see if there are any custom exhaust shops here

i'm looking to do something like 3.5", x-pipe, and maybe stainless pipes or Ti if possible, and want to make the exhaust with flanges for removability (this is just a thought not a necessity as i don't plan to take it apart)
i realize i may need to order some of that stuff
i also want to use borla's too

need a shop with mandrel bending capabilities

my other option is to get a torque tech kit and have that done
i can at least send it out to get partially coated first

i'd get my own mandrel bender, just not cost worthy for me.... got other equipment purchases on my radar.

anyone know of any?

When I wanted a mandrel bent exhaust for my Sentra (which didn't exist at the time), I took my car to Clanton Muffler and he told me what angle of bends to buy and I bought them off the internet, then he put it together. I don't know of a shop with a bender though.

I'd talk to Jeff at Jeff's Muffler and Brake. He also has a cruise-in this weekend the same time as Steak and Shake that has a good turnout.

Jeff definitely doesn't do mandrel bends. I would go the route dragginbody went. I actually took my car to Clanton to fix something Jeff had done...so you can take that for what it's worth.

Good to know. I didn't know if he had the equipment or not.

I couldn't find anyone around that does mandrel bends, so I bought from Hogan Performance on ebay and would recommend them.
