Some more pictures. The smaller mounting (2nd piccy) has had quite an innovative repair done to it ;-0

It's a bolt-on solution ;-0

Thanks to google, you could say it was a bolt from the blue but as sweet as a nut {°¿°}

Adjusted the angle of the exhaust rear section and have been juggling rubber mountings about to get the best effect on bumps. sm18

Bit more juggling of exhaust rubbers has allowed me to come up with the perfect (sounds dodgy doesn't it) solution in the form of some self-adhesive heat insulation padding which was cut to size and stuck on in a couple of places.

Currently it seems to work well.

I'll let you know how long this one lasts ;-0

Nightmare! I hope the coach didn't wallop the exhaust and damage your new mounts :shock:
Hope you get it sorted out.
Captain Tolleys - new one on me, 'creeping crack cure' sounds a bit dodgy :lol:

Hello, it is a bit dodgy if you get it on your fingers - it never comes off, well not for hours anyway. Thankfully the exhaust was all fine - it was the other side. I stopped at a roundabout and there was a coach behind me but it moved away quicker than I did, well, I couldn't move away cos the coast was not clear in front for me!! The Captain Tolley's seems to be doing quite a good job ;-0

The bump-stop pad for the zhaust seems to be OK. The picture suggests shifting the next one to the right a bit.
