Question surface rust on hotdog muffler, still ok??

hey everyone

my centre and year mufflers are leaking and i tried to get a pinkslip but didn't

so now i need to get something done about it

finances being stretched a bit with having paid nearly two thou for insurance, needing to pay for greenslip and rego now and it being xmas, im considering a more affordable price for getting exhaust work done

someone at work gave me a hotdog muffler which looks a few years old

it has 2" joins at each end which seem to have a bit of surface rust going inside

is this still ok to use? they just weld it up right?

im thinking of taking it to a muffler place and asking them to fit it

Basically, as long as when you put your hand over the end of the muffler it holds pressure, does not leak, and has no exhaust bandages on it, they should pass it.

Alot of exhaust places have good stuff in the throw out bins, if you ask nice they let you have it.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

if the metal is in good nick then yes, the muffler place will soon tell you otherwise (tell em you just have to get past rego, they may help you out more)
