Your better off finding an independent muffler shop for getting bends done. They have been in business for years for a reason. Typically are a couple of old guys working there.

You could also have done the same thing with two prebent elbow exhaust bends. Welding would be preferred but hose and clamps works too.

I used JB weld putty stick on mine but was only a pin hole not a crater like yours. I sandblasted, puttied, and repainted. Worked like charm.

That's what the one elbow is, I took an exhaust elbow and cut the flanges off, but then I needed a sharper angle to get to the tank.

-This is Fuel filler hose that I used, there is no reason for it to leak. Just like the foot long piece that already came from the tank and was held onto the previous filler neck, with a hose clamp. No pressure, so unless a clamp is loose, or a hole rusts through, they don't leak.

PVC gets very brittle over time, and espeically cold. Not sure if it's resistant to gas, doubt it, but I'm not sure.

I feel for you rust belt guys. I know of several Metros in local salvage yards that are not rusty. I just bought a tranny w/ a " bad 2nd gear "out of a Mk5 4 cyl Swift for $100. 3.79 final, I 'll open it up in the morning. The cars are intact with just mechanical problems. I can get Phone #'s if you like.

That would be cool! I am looking hard for a timing cover for my 3 cyl.

Pick A Part in Albany Oregon is where I purchased two wheels and a 5-speed out of a Mk 5 4-cyl Swift coupe. (541)-926-5855. Riverside Salvage in Albany Oregon (541)-967-3904 is where I purchased two g10 engines and misc parts for the Mk 2 I just finished putting back together, which I have for sale. Hope this helps.
