Ok, I know I am probably beating a dead horse here. I was going to go with Patriot Side pipes on my chevy 76 shorty, but I have had a lot of negative response to their pipes. I do not want them to look like hell in a year or two. I cannot find any other options. it has been frustrating. So the question:

Has anyone ever used semi curved stack pipe for side pipes? I know I would need 1 band clamp, and I can get everything chromed in 3.5 inch. I am planning on drilling 2 holes in the pipes, one in the front and one in the rear to run a large diameter bolt through. I would use the bolts as mounting points. if I do this on the side hidden under the van I think it will be clean. has anyone ever done this??? Does anyone have any other options??? Any opinions??

thanks

matt

Anything you hang under the rocker is going to corrode in the winter- especially if the roads are salted or worse- brined. The front wheel is going to spray the pipe with garbage.

I am not planning on this van being on the roads in the winter just for this reason. it's too clean to allow to start rusting.

They are still susceptible to road garbage, all you can do is clean them often.

The thrush really look good when they are cleaned up but they are not cheap

I remember my first set of Thrush Sidekicks I bought back around 1978 for my Mid-Dodge, around $75 for the pair. Everybody was running sidepipes back then, on vans, trucks, and cars, the auto parts had boxes of them stacked from floor to ceiling.
