I am working on the exhaust on one of my vehicles and am in need of someone to mandrel bend some 2.5 OD pipe for me. I live in Highlands Ranch and would like to get this done soon. I need to bend to pieces of OD 2.5 pipe to 45* angles. Please let me know if you would be able to help me!!

Thanks,

I think Bud's does mandrel bends:

Other than that you can buy mandrel bent pipe from Summit. That's usually what i do. It is usually here in a few days if it is in stock.

Hanksville Hotrods is pretty close to you and from what I hear are second to none when it comes to mandrel tube bending in the area!

Nice to know there is a bender in town. When I ran my exhaust, I wound up buying mandrel bends from JCWhitney and welding them together. It actually worked out pretty well since you don't have this long piece of pipe you have to keep working with as you figure out the pattern.

Hank built my down pipe for my 70. It cost a lot (Stainless) but wasn't outrageous. He's a real good guy to work with I would highly recommend.

I went to Hank after hearing the good recommendation and he was a great guy! Showed my brother and I around the shop all the projects he has going, and sold me the parts I needed at a great price!

Highly recommend him!

+1 on Hanksville. He did my fender glide bars in back and I welded them up from the pieces.

Another resource is AA Performance Muffler on S. Broadway in Englewood. Very inexpensive and very good work. I *think* I saw mandrel bends on the exhaust they were fabbing for a CJ2A frame up resto.
