I used an aluminum pie pan from the dollar store to make some head gaskets. I had an old muffler that was in sad shape. I had to cut, grind, weld and bend it to fit on my bike. Since getting layed off after 22years on the job I have to watch every penny we spend lately, so this is definately a scraped together/ use what you can find project.
Glad to hear you're getting something together, really sorry to hear about the lay-off man, I worry about that myself with all the idiots we have in Washington doing all the stupid junk they been doing, with making socialist laws that will likely put a bunch of us out of worjk time its all said and done, I could really get on my soap box here on this one but I will refrain so I don't get in trouble here.
really sorry for the hard time buddy.... I know it stinks, just hope this nation wakes up and throws the bums out before its to late.
