Lou's Custom Exhaust of Quincy is now offering vehicle undercoating by NH Oil Undercoating.
Most people will rarely see the underside of their car or truck, but that won’t change its condition. It’s important your vehicles chassis and undercarriage are well protected from the elements. The fact is, a new vehicle is subjected to thousands of spot welds and numerous bends and folds during production.
This process damages the pre-coated metal, allowing exposure to the corrosion process. Besides cosmetic damage,corrosion also weakens a vehicle’s structural integrity and can affect steering and suspension components.The destructive force of auto corrosion is the single greatest threat to your vehicle. It can lead to rapid deterioration of metal, not only resulting in poor appearance, loss of value but real safety hazards.
Don’t wait until you have a structural failure or fail a safety inspection. Deal with rust as you would any other maintenance item on the vehicle. Unlike paint or conventional undercoating, which cover and encapsulate rust, our rust prevention methods and products penetrate through rust to the base metal. NH Oil Undercoating® Vehicle Undercoating Service is designed to create a barrier that can’t be broken, chipped or cracked. By staying fluid, our petroleum-based rust protection heals back over after any abrasions providing lasting protection, even in extreme conditions.
Give the team in Quincy a call if you are interested, 617-773-6500.
We will be open a full day, Saturday, September 1st for Labor Day weekend. We will be closed on Monday, the 3th, for the holiday itself. We will be back first thing Tuesday morning at 8:30am

Who is Lou’s Muffler and Brake, of Hanover, Hyannis, Plymouth, Quincy, and Westport?
Lou's Muffler and Brake in Hanover, Hyannis, Plymouth, Quincy, and Westport are independently owned and operated custom exhaust shops specializing in the fabrication of stock replacement and performance exhaust systems. We pride ourselves on our fabrication and welding skills developed through years of training and experience. These 5 shops share philosophy and employees.
First thing you will notice is that we don’t charge you anything to look at and diagnose your car’s issue. At many shops you will be hit with a standard $100, or more, “diagnostic fee”. Then there is the exceptional value pricing of our work. We keep the price low and quality high because we start with raw materials; straight 14 gauge pipe, mufflers, and hangers. Our experienced employees fabricate your exhaust system to your vehicle specifications.
The advantage: a perfect fit and cost savings to our customers. National chain shops buy pre-bent exhaust systems from their franchisors at very high prices and pass this cost to their customers. Lou's of Hanover, Hyannis, Plymouth, Quincy, and Westport do not have middle men—so our prices are typically hundreds of dollars less.
1) We fabricate our own exhaust piping and repair parts keeping the cost of the replacement parts much lower
2) There are several shops that buy materials together in bulk further reducing the prices on materials
3) We can cut and weld replacement parts, such as catalytic converters, into stock systems saving the customer hundreds or even thousands of dollars
4) We cut out the middleman.
On most typical repairs we can save you, the customer, anywhere from $100 all the way up to thousands of dollars. A perfect example of this is replacing the front flex pipes on an Audi A4. These parts have a catalytic converter built into them. To replace both flex pipes here it would cost you under $400.00 for BOTH sides. The factory part, unistalled, costs $700 per side. Aftermarket you can typically get them for $325.00 per side. By fabricating this ourselves we can save you over a thousand dollars.
You can also check us out on our website at LousMuffler.Com, facebook https://www.facebook.com/LousCustomExhaust, and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/lous_custom_exhaust/
We have a new shop opening in Hanover this Saturday, February 24th! The shop is located at 972 Washington Street in Hanover and the phone number is 781-829-4900. We are taking appointments for the shop now if you are interested.
This link will take you to the contact information page for the shop on our website http://www.lousmuffler.com/locations/hanover
Here are a few pictures of the shop
We hope to see you at our new location soon!

We wanted to let everyone know that all 4 Lou's Locations in Hyannis, Plymouth, Quincy, and Westport will be closed Monday, December 25th, for Christmas. We will be back Tuesday morning, the 26th, for a full day of business!
We will also be closed Monday January 1st, for New Years Day. We will be back for a full day Tuesday, January 2nd.
We know that a lot of you have time off this time of year or are home from college. This is the perfect time to have damaged exhausts, worn brakes, or anything else checked out for free then repaired if necessary. We do free estimates so come by or call us.
We also have gift certificates available in any denomination at all our locations. These make a great gift for that car enthusiast in your life or for someone you know who needs to fix their brakes, quiet down an exhaust, or have something else repaired.
We do truck exhaust manifolds at the 4 Lou's Muffler and Brake (a division of Lou's Custom Exhaust) locations in Hyannis, Plymouth, Quincy, and Westport. With winter coming, now is the perfect time to get that plow truck or your daily driver's manifold fixed! Those manifold leaks will make you lose a lot of low end power, gas mileage, and can let the bad exhaust fumes into your cabin!
At Lou's Muffler and Brake our manifold prices are competitive with, or below, the competition's prices. We will also price match any written estimate. When we do a manifold we extract all the old studs, even if the threads are still good. We replace them with factory, stainless, studs and nuts. We also get the factory, metal, gasket instead of using the supplied fiber one.
Most manifold jobs have a same day turnaround and, as with all of our work, we give a 2 year warranty on parts and labor.
Give us a call or swing by any one of our 4 locations for a free estimate on your manifold needs!

At Lou’s Custom Exhaust of Hyannis, Plymouth, Quincy, and Westport we do more than just exhaust work. We also do brake work, tune-ups, struts, and other under car repairs. We give free work estimates, including brake inspections. If our technicians find your car needs attention we can usually fix it the same day.
Here is some information about our brake services:
Brake Fluid Flushes
Believe it or not your brake fluid is not suppose to look like molasses! Brake fluid, like brake hardware, isn’t indestructible. Parts such as the rubber in the valves in the master cylinder, calipers and wheel cylinders deteriorate. All the little bits that flake off end up in your brake fluid. Plus the fluid itself can get old and worn out. Moisture also gets in the system, due to brake fluid's hydroscopic nature. This leads to poor braking performance and rust, which leads to more particles in your brake fluid. All this adds up to a brake system with compromised stopping power. Think of it this way, you wouldn't skip changing your car's engine oil, right? It's the blood of your engine, and when it gets contaminated by impurities, you put the entire engine at risk. It's the same with brake fluid. Let it get dirty and you won't be able to stop as well. It may not seem like a big deal when you're standing at the service desk and the mechanic asks if you want him to flush your brakes, but when you're careening down that mountain road, you'll understand why it's an important part of vehicle maintenance.
If you're a do it yourself type of person (which we know many people are now a days) to check your brake fluid is only a hood pop away! Color and consistency are the two major signs of deteriorating (read bad) fluid. There are also moisture level test strips. Visually fluid should be a light golden yellow color, the darker it gets the dirtier and contaminated it has become. Also meaning the viscosity is wearing out AKA you're losing the lifeline of your brakes! Typically if you start when your vehicle is new a good interval for a brake fluid flush is every 25k-35k miles. The longer you go without flushing the fluid the more corrosion build up meaning more problems can arise. In the big picture of the things spending money now could save you thousands in the future. Not only in damage to your vehicles braking system but without brakes your vehicle becomes a weapon, putting others at risk!
Brake Inspections. Pad, Rotor, Caliper, and Line Replacements
The only thing better than a car that goes is a car that stops. Routine inspections keep your vehicle stopping safer, longer. How often you have to change your brakes depends on a lot of things driving conditions, rotor thickness, quality of brake pads, and more. A routine brake inspection makes certain that your braking system is safe.
Lou’s Muffler and Brake is proud to offer free brake inspections at the Hyannis, Plymouth, Quincy, and Westport locations. Our professional technicians will visually assess your brakes to determine if any service or repairs are needed.
A few signs your brakes might need service or replacement:
•Brake pedal is low or spongy (goes to the floor when pressed)
•Brake pedal is hard to depress (won’t go down at all)
•Brake service warning light stays lit at all times
•Squealing or grinding at stop
So if you are experiencing any of these symptoms please swing by one of our shops for a free estimate
