Exhaust tips

Recommended Posts

I'm a diabetic and use a dial-a-pen for my insulin. One of the parts to the needle (which is normally just thrown away) is just right for exhaust tips. They are 5/32 inch diameter X 9/16 inch long. They look good when painted with a Molotow pen.

I used one of the larger caps for an air cleaner on a RM Crusader motorcycle.

I was going to use the wheels & tires from the 99 Silverado on a Jeep J10, but I needed to step the axle size from 5/32 down to 3/32. Oddly enough, one of those tips is the correct size.

I also used a section as a coil spring. Injector stacks, off road shocks, Coke cans. I started collecting them earlier this year. I've got a decent supply that is growing daily.

I use these. Real metal, hollow and to scale. What more could you ask for. Available at my LHS which sell RC planes and cars.

You could also cut up a boom box antenna with a tube cutter... I think those are made from chrome plated brass tubing... I save old junk like that...??
