Did my own Pipe Repair was created by tf2
After dinging my expansion chamber a few times in the last couple of months i had one, a fmf gnarly repaired by a bloke which cost me $80. (Which is very reasonable).I figured i should learn how to repair it myself.

I love special projects and my missus usually gets much amusement in the research I put into them as well as our special field trips to procure supplies for my special projects. :dry:

Once i worked out how to do it and completing a thorough risk assessment and JSA which included a hot work permit.I set about getting the job done B)

I blocked the ends off and pressurised the pipe after a thorough clean, degrease and CO2 purge. then hit it with a Mapp gas torch.
after heat.


Then i gave it a bit of a clean and polish.



.

Before i attacked the Gnarly i popped out a ding from my twin wall OEM Pipe which the shops said couldnt be done. that was my first go and i was very cautious and nervous about the process and know i can get the OEM pipe looking good too.

cheers

In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away
