Nice, hope it holds up for you. Have you heard it run yet? Sound level? Here is some good header wrap if you don't have any yet. You will want to double wrap that for sure.

yes I have run it a little it sounds pretty close to the stock Honda muffler, I did already get a roll of header wrap, Thanks for the link though,  So the parts are pretty easy to find. But not just any muffler shop can weld Stainless up.
The 90* elbows are called weld elbows.
the main body is SS Tubing .062 wall.
I put a perforated tube up the center with a plug on the top of it. (didn't take any pics, I have a bad habit of that)
Packed the main body with SS scrubbers.
I have a CNC plazma cutter so we cut the end caps on site here.
made the Flange that bolts to the engine, its just 1.25 wide flat SS stock.
might have $40 in the project not counting the hours of setting it up and welding.

I have enough parts left for about 2 more, not sure if I'd want to do more though, :)
I'm chomping at the bit to get it out to really hear it out on the water,
wrapping it here in a bit pics to follow,

Looks like a winner. Have you cut another vent hole in the hood yet? One above the carburetor, that mirrors the exhaust port, would be a good idea. Vent exit should have twice the area as the inlet.

Yes it is a very valuable skill, I have went through over 50 potential employees to find the 3 I have in my shop, 2 of them are ladys that I taught how to TIG weld, Get him to look at TIG and he can anywhere and get a job if he's good.
