Convoluted pipe dreams!







Finally took the time to build some decent pipes for my shovel. I always planned on a rippled set, just wasn't willing to pay through the ass for the rippled pipe itself. I finally found a couple NOS pieces for a decent price and got to work, just a bit more metal finishing and off to chrome. Unbelievable the time it took to make such a basic looking system...and this rippled pipe contracts with the heat from the welding and makes a perfect fit hard to get..it also makes me swear and throw stuff....
