I'm venturing in to new territory (for me) and fitting sidepipes. Next comes choosing escutcheon plates. Can anyone provide any pictures of their pride & joys and also where is the best place to obtain them.
Many Thanks .....

Hi Robin,

Just make a nice neat hole and fit the pipes no need for ugly lumps of metal round every opening.

I think its just people who can't cut properly who use escutcheons to cover up their bodges.

I totally agree, don't use them, just make the hole neat in the first place, and make sure you have around 10mm clearance minimum between the collector and the body so the heat isn't a problem.
Escutcheon plates are always hard to fit on that area as its acompound curve.
