The Vbands I've bought in the past didn't slip over the pipe. They just butt up against it.

Had to fix the truck clutch. The fork and the pivot ball ate eachother. It looked ok until unassembled. Apparently it's a wear item for this setup! haha Clutch pedal felt like it was getting harder to push and it actually bent the fork too. Which was also eating the throw out bearing.

So I replaced it all and did the whole clutch too since it was so cheap. New one is a stock 1-ton clutch that is much more wife-friendly than the HD one that was in it. Pedal is super light now! Huge difference.

Had to do it in my old man's garage cause the Camaro is in pieces in mine. That's good though, cause it was a mess. Poor truck has seen a lot of salt over the last 7 years. Even my stainless exhaust is lookin ugly, and it snapped two of the T-bolts on the V-band clamps. Free fix though with the welder as long as it holds up.

Got to play in the snow with it this week. Got 30" in about 24hrs and the roads were the worst I've ever seen. I had to chauffeur the wife to work at the ER in the LimouZine71. Never got it stuck though! And I was the only one who made it in to work for 2 days. haha
