Home Depot. Go get the (I think) 2" wide? Foam insulation tape with the foil backing. It'* not very sticky, but works well on a clean pipe if you do a 50% overlap all the way down. I can shoot a pic later if you like.

Good install, but was the coupler that came with the product, a tight fit to get over the TB? Mine was too small.

Yeah..it was the coupler that came with it. Haro told me superdad had lubed it and after a 1/2 hour got it to go over. Took me 30 seconds. I put a little silicone lube on one half of the inside of the coupler...caught the bottom lip and stretched it up and over.

Don't get me wrong...anyone can do it... But I got talent!

Awesome job on that pipe. I am wondering if that same kind of cut on my pipe will get it off off my compressor even with the double washer bottle? Hmmmmmmmmmmm, something else to add to the list this weekend.

I held it up and looked it over for fit... be careful not to cut too much off cause the coupler will want to straighten it out when you clamp down if you take too much off.

If those couplers are too tight, warm them up for a bit first, then put rubbing alcohol or mild soapy water on the inside.
