Default Re: muffler gasket blowout

I've had the same problem blowing the exhaust gaskets on mine but I have a CNC machine and I'll be making some solid copper gaskets to remedy the problem of the gaskets blowing out and the nuts working their way loose.
To remedy the nuts constantly working their way loose, I got some brass nuts from Fred's ebay store and drilled safety wire holes in them so I can safety wire them after they're torqued, the gasket still wears out and the nuts will be loose after a few more hours of riding, but I can re torque and re safety wire without worrying about the nuts coming off and losing my pipe on the road.
I'm hoping the copper gaskets will remedy both problems.
