Reminds me of a ghetto FMIC I did. Held together at 10+psi for over 6 months.

Part attachment was done with JBWeld and fiberglass sheets, resin.

It broke one night at the track and I had to get it back together to drive home (car had a MAFS) and no coupler could help because i chopped the stock inlet pipe off flush.

I ended up getting a ride to a grocery store and got a 2-part epoxy mix, cut strips off of my t-shirt, drenched them in epoxy and went to work (with bare hands too...sucked). It was air tight, got me home and then some before giving out.

danit. pics aint loading. i'll fix tomorrow

Well if it could work for me and WI then why not for Adam. I just had to google magnamx and it gave me a chuckle i have to admit.

This will always by my favorite car project ever. Though I never used it, it was a lot of fun!
