    Exhaust Air Bag

    Finally had a go at trying this yesterday and FAILED!

    The quality looks fine from what I can see and I'm happy enough, but I had two issues:

    1. The exhaust has had a chrome tip put on it and it leaked back around the join when I tried to use it, so it just wouldn't inflate (this was the main issue)
    2. I decided to try it under the drivers side and from the exhaust coming out the rear left you can't see what's going on if you are doing it on your own

    I'll take off the chrome tip and throw it away (I often hit it anyway, so should get rid of it). But I never thought about the visibility issues. Just gonna have to do it a bit at a time and check on it I guess. I probably will get a piece of carpet or maybe mudflap to have around incase I want a bit more padding than bit of stuff provided.

    Would encourage anyone to test it before you need it if you do get one of these.

    Gday. Visibility should not be too big of an issue as there wouldn't be many times if any that you would be on your own, especially out on the tracks.

    ... or, if it is an issue, use a compressor for inflation instead of the exhaust gas.

    Must try mine at some stage. It has both a ‘funnel’ like yours to push over the exhaust, but also has a valve to fit a compressed airline to.

    I had to put a chrome tip on my exhaust as it was cut at 45 degree angle, works fine but be careful you don't get coated in soot if you don't hold it tight. Never tried the compressor fitting, wonder how quick it would be.
    Cheers
