There's gotta be a hundred ways to skin that cat. I am running a home made muffler on MULE, and had that very same one on my old gokart before. Sweet and easy to build. I'm gonna fab another one soon, I'll make a vid this time, because I caught hell from people for not making a vid last time...

I think I would pass on making all those holes for the core. The rest doesn't look so bad.

I'd probably buy the core from a place like this; http://www.coneeng.com/mufflers.html

Not really a muffler anymore with a straight pipe through it. - Well some offcourse but its more for power.

If you want to make a muffler thats actually quiet you block the pipe, say mid-way. Then drill holes on each end. The small holes diameter should together be the big pipes diameter. on each end. - then fill it with a suited dampening wool.

Takes all the fun out of finding a cheap used glass pack at a swap meet. Think he'll eventually paint it with high heat red?

Here's some old pictures of a muffler I welded up a while back. I was trying to do it with a stick welder and some thin rods before I had a wire feed job, so the welds didn't come out too good. One inlet, two outlets.

Edit feb 2017(pics gone, were linked from another forum which apparently deleted the old thread with the pics...)

Very similar to what I did. I used a length of pipe as the muffler's "core". At the half mark, I used my grinder to cut a slot about 3/4 through the pipe, and inserted a slug made out of steel sheet (16ga I believe) and welded it in, creating a stop. Then, instead of drilling a zillion holes, I used my grinder again. I cut a dozen or so slots along the pipe, maybe 1/4 of the way thru the pipe, all the way along (both sides of the stop, spaced evenly along the pipe. I flipped the pipe over and repeated, so that I had slots down both sides- not that a pipe has "sides", but you get the idea.

From there, it was a simple matter of welding it into the canister I chose. I did not use any kind of damping material. I might on the next one.
