George were you not concerned about moiasture escaping?

Whne I did the drivers s ide I thought I was screwed because the flange that 
is welded to the outlet pipe was totally coroded. Fortunately I was able to 
aquire a split triangular flange . As far as the band clamps go I just don't 
know ... I can definitely hear them , maybe I wrap something around and try 
again , Amybe I am screwing them TOO tight and they are warping the bands .. 
who knows ... but you are right George .. it is a very frustrating and 
misrable  Job if you have corrosion and busted studs to deal with , 
especially on jack stands ... regardless now , I can live with it ...
