Post by callahan on Tue Aug 24, 2010 2:05 pm

i've got something in the works right now and need to know the dimensions of a stinger if someone could help me out

any help would be sweet!

I just measured Drew stinger. The dimensions of the stinger is its seventeen inches long, with a diameter of two inches to three inches. The gauge is unknown.

I've got three different stingers at home. One is designed to fit under the apron, it has a curve out of the flange, so it sits lower, and its shorter then most i've seen. the other is the long one, you normally have to cut the apron for, and its alot longer, and the other, has a big angle on it, i was told it was for a baja, kinda like those tall exhausts a lot of baja's have where the pipe goes straight up, except it has a flange, instead of held on by springs.

i'll try to get dimensions of each tomorrow

I would let nature do a patina job on the copper and turn it green, that would look cool

Or, see if you can find some high heat paint in clear
