    @Dan Miller I used synthetic roof felt. Not the tar stuff; it looks woven almost. 30# equivalent.

    The angle looks real close after trimming. Looks like the new one has a sharper bend but it fits pretty good. Might have to be cautious when pumping gas tho 15690004237681608351655949152163.jpg

    Finally got it installed . the filler tube needed trimmed to fit. Angle looks good , no gas leaks . the vent tube wants to kink a bit tho I think it's fine . shoulda went with the ones mentioned from LMC just didnt wanna wait.. O-well . It's done , I'm happy . Back on the road
