I have a small angle between the exhaust downpipe and the exhaust (single piece, under axle, large bore, single rear silencer - originally made for a CVH) that I need to weld a flange onto. Some investigation turned up this site that calculates a mitre joint shape in 2D which you print out and wrap ...

Thanks James - they're camera photos, it's much nicer in the flesh - and that's straight from the gun and covered in dust from the rafters where the panels have lived for several months :D

Got half a day on this today and managed to trial fit the outer wings. First off though, I had to straighten the lower edge of both of them.

funny thing about this place

I would totally oppose a round robin message to all registered members telling them their account will be deleted if they don't reply because (your words) "they're chaff". We're a friendly bunch and that doesn't seem friendly to me. If you could think of a good reason for doing so it would be worth ...

A few more stats from the members list: 266 members logged in this week (17-23 Sept) A further 50 logged in the week before (10-16 Sept) A further 52 the week before (3-9 Sept) And 34 the week previous.

Vinyl roof

Assuming the roof is okay underneath the vinyl, I expect it will just add several hours to the labour bill - the glue can be quite difficult to get off.
