This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Metal Working.

For this BB, you will be making a vehicle exhaust system!  This isn't just replacing a muffler or repairing a crack, this is putting in a full system.  It has to be more complicated than a tractor for this BB.

Here is one way to do it:


Point range 3 to 6 points.  3 points for a typical submission of a "normal" vehicle.  6 points for something particularly complicated

Minimum requirements:
  - Proper welds
  - Properly supported from the frame
  - Includes catalytic converter and muffler or whatever emissions equipment is required in your region

To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - The supplies you're starting with
 - Partway through the build
 - The finished vehicle exhaust system
