Default Re: Another Flexpipe

At the beginning of the weekend I went through the trouble of wrapping the cracked portion with fibre glass matting, light gauge sheet metal and then a stainless steel band clamp (more sheet metal and multiple strap clamps).

Big mistake, it actually made everything louder. I guess it went from being a crack leaking pressure waves to a large speaker radiating sound in all directions.

That's gone.

Still waiting to hear back on some details before ordering.
