If we were doing a standard exhaust installation we could use one of these cards. And they go by feet and degrees and they describe, for instance, how to build a exhaust system for a '64 to '67 Chevrolet Corvette. Here's the length where you make the bends, there's the degree of how you make them. We very rarely are able to use these cards because we mostly build custom exhaust here but there is the occasion where we're able to use those. Most of the custom exhaust installation is done just by feel. Dave has been doing this for many years but he feels like the way to start the job is with a 45 degree bend so he watches the indicator go to 45 degrees. He then holds it in place to see how well it fits and where his next bend will be.
