Still waiting for the flanges to get made. :(
That'* the problem with living in a small town that doesn't have a decent machine shop. Have to go out of town to get made.
I'm getting them laser cut out of stainless steel 3/8" plate to match the OEM flange and gasket.

It'* not too bad. A fab shop I deal with will sell them to me at their cost. The pair will come to $100. I feel it will be worth it to be able to unbolt the exhaust after the downpipe on special occasions.

Achem!!! that'* Paper Mill !! Our stinky Pulp mill was shut down a couple of years ago. The Chinese are in the process of taking it apart, piece by piece, to ship it all over to China.
So now you see how the Ricers really do it. Take over countries that is!!! Steal jobs. Take equipment and structures.
LOL Then the ultimate, they send their elderly over here to suck off of our health care system.
..........Sorry, for the divergence from the topic....

What thickness of urethane did you select?

The final product with 3" dia x 1 1/2" high aluminum spacer between two 3/4" urethane wafers and 1/8"thick washers top and bottom. A good solid mount using an M12 x 180 mm long Metric 8.8 hi strength bolt with locknut.

The time to take it out and try it will be very soon........as soon as the rain dies down a bit more. Got to have dry pavement for its first burn.
I'll keep you posted and let you know as soon as I do.
