    Working on it Herve. Although i stabbed myself in the arm with a hot tipped welding wire last night to the bone i think. Lucky tho, missed the vein by about a 1/4 inch. Arm hurts like a mofo today and looks like i was shooting heroin with a syringe. lol

    On topic tho, i've been brainstorming how i'm gonna boatside...ish around the side exhaust and a pic came up of a local buggy fell'r that's running a flex pipe off the headers to schedule 40 welded to frame. I really like this idea. Added structure and packaging. But, where can a cheap ass grab a 3" of one of these or something similar?

    You can get the corregated exhaust tubing (bottom pic) from any big truck exhaust shop or any parts house that carries Walker exhaust products. I use some on my heep to connect the hard mount exhaust to the vibrating exhaust.

    I wouldn't recommend using the coupling in the top pic you posted. It won't work for how you are trying to use it. It has little to no vibration and flexibility properties. It is a front drive torque/flex coupling and is very rigid.

    Aaaaaaaand, it's dead. Fired it up a few times over a few days while tidying up some other stuff. Fired it up the other day, shut it down, went to start a minute later and nothing. Did some troubleshooting and getting nothing from the fuel pump wire out of the computer and the code reader won't connect which it did the first couple times i fired. Wired pump direct for shits but as expected no dice (checked and no spark). Seems odd the computer would choke just like that.

    Also posted on the 5.3 swaps on pirate but thinking computer may have puked. Anybody know of a good local computer programmer around. Can get my hands on another computer so if i can find someone local i'll just drop off both for test and re-program. Let me know. Another kick in the fawkin nuts!

    Well, square headlight yard heep held up for 10 days in the bush, as did the Ferd....barely. lol

    Good news is i grabbed another computer on the cheap, talked to buddy south of the border who did all our programming, and he said send both down. He have a look at mine and program the other no charge, just pay shipping. So i'm headed to the post office later today. Back to panels and what nots while i wait. Really hoping i get to wheel it this year. lol

    Hopefully, he doesn't doddle around with the programming.

    Did the tree fiddy frame suffer any damage or deformation after your game of twister in the bush? Can't believe it stayed intact after twisting like that.
