Another Cheap Upgrade - The Tailpipe Hanger

The old hanger clamp on the tail pipe had been bothering me; a previous owner had rigged a cheap metal strap that looked like a cast-off from a rust festival.

1) The old strap. It's not real visible in this pic but too late, the offending item has been trashed

I searched the web for a new clamp. The BMW version was NLA, of course. I found that Walker Exhaust Systems made a similar part. I had no way of verifying that it would fit but sometimes these things just work out. Anyhow it only cost three dollars.

Fifteen minutes or so of tinkering was enough to fit the new piece.

2) New and shiny
