that sounds a good idea willD but HDPE only has a life expectancy of 100 years and as im in my v.late 50's the last thing I want is to die in an HDPE related accident.

I used carbon fiber tube 1mm wall to seal my manifold to silencer joint and it works perfect. but I couldn't find any the right diameter but have bought some a bit larger and will cut a tiny slot so it fits.

I will have a search for HDPE
