    planish over an 1"&/3/4" manderel might do it.

    Mine really needs a new one now though.

    I wish to get a proper system made with quality ss & heatshields & slightly sporty 'silencers' in order to avoid the only just fits scenarios mentioned.

    Anyone know of a quality midlands bespoke ss exhaust 'firm' ?

    The problem with my cars exhaust is that it has been fitted with the usual crappy mild steel exhaust clamps that leave a groove in the outer pipe when they have been over tightened by Mr Kw*kF*t with a windy set to "bloody tight". I have spent a little time with various bits of tubing and a body hammer trying to get the joints more cylindrical but I suspect I really need to get a new one from Double 'S' but that's £400 which is irritating as the one that's on there works when it's sealed.
