Titanium can, aluminum ends, Stainless mid pipe. I welded the aluminum internally and polished it back so no visible welds. Still need to paint the hanger.
Before :  83db idle / 107db @5kRPM

I shortened the can 3". Had to remake the hanger because the shorter can threw the proportions off. Also finally got around to designing some branding and making a badge - magnesium dies for logo with 3D printed die for curve.

Outrageous skills, check.
Bitchin' logo, check.

I'd say you're ready to hang out your shingle and start selling custom bikes and tee shirts.

BTW, what did you use for the red background on that badge? It looks amazing.
Is this thing working? Is this thing on?
