Default Exhaust Pipe Mock-Up

Has anybody found a way to mock-up routing exhaust pipes without using the actual exhaust pipe? I am hopeing to get a rough estimate of length/bends i will need.

The only idea i could come up with was using a hard line (i.e. brake line) bending that in the path i want and just do some measuring off of it to check for clearences. If that would work i would hae a decnt guess for where and how i need bends in my pipe.

Any idea/ comments are greatly appreciated.

I don't think i've ever mocked exhaust up like that before.

crawl under your truck with a peice of paper and a clipboard take a look at it and decided where you want your exhaust to go, from there decide how many and what bends you need.

flexible exhaust tube. Bend it how you want, keep it that way for the ride over to the muffler shop, get stuff bent. Enjoy beer and job well done.
