WANTED - Lobster Back Pipe Fabricator

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I am trying to locate a fabricator who can fabricate lobster back pipework.

I have a 4 inch alloy pipe which connects my air filter pod to my supercharger, due to the tight radius bend the pipe didn't match up nicely so I do not have a nice flowing bend, I am hoping I can replace it with a lobster back style bend out of stainless pipe.

I will freight you my existing pipe so you can make a JIG and copy it.

Please email me at [email protected] if your keen on a paid job.

Cheers Rick

lobster is very time consuming, you could get an alloy donut with a tight radius - such as http://www.jntperformance.com.au/index_g3.html?itemId=13665772&catId=395407

and have someone modify yours or start again.  clearance wise im sure most would prefer to have the car to work with.

Adrian at Garage48 seems to be a glutton for punishment and does a fair bit of this if you're anywhere near Sydney. While back, I heard, he subbed out the tedious cutting exercise to someone - and they managed to turn a lot of tube to scrap by making an angle on one face and a straight cut on the other!:spank:
