how did the seal fail?

They've clamped one on for me before but I had to go back. I recomend welding it. Did they give you a price on it? shouldn't be more than $85 to $90 bucks at the most.

Well while out today doing some business, I noticed something in the parrking lot today. That damn camera of mine was dead and will be the death of me one of these days. A kid had actually welded a "wood stove" pipe up to his car for an exhaust. That damn thing was even bigger than what was posted. It had to be at least 10 inches in width.

I would definately weld it. Those clamps used don't really work and tend to destroy the piping.
