    Default '58 to '60 Tail Pipe Insulators

    The tail pipe insulators in the '59 I'm working on are disintegrating. I know you can buy the complete bracket with insulator assembly but they aren't cheap.

    Anyone try to make your own insulator or know where just the insulator can be bought? The originals look like they were cut from tire material similar to what was used on some generic tail pipe clamp brackets.

    Thanks,
    Gerry

    That was always my opinion too. They look to be cut out of the sidewall of old tires. It shouldn't be too hard to make your own as long as the metal parts are usable.
