    Made a new run of Balance Pipes a few weeks ago, and had some extra steel left over... So after thinking about and wanting to make an FX Balance Pipe for the last few years... I finally made a few of these...

    I wanted to make a super intricate, overly-elaborate adapter... and the guys at the shop looked at me like I was crazy!! :lol In the end, simplicity really is king!
    1" tube fits nice and snug inside the Balance Pipe, and the adapter fits nice and snug inside the tube! :D

    After filing down the sharp corners of the LED it fit in the adapter as snug as a bug in a rug. The lense has a slightly smaller diameter, so it fit easily. But I still opted to file down the one little "nub" all of these lenses seem to have.

    Anyways... I picked up the new FX BPs today, and got to work... No sound yet, but it's coming! :D Hope you guys like. :cheers

    If there's enough interest I'll make an actual run of FX BPs, but for right now I only made 9 extra. So I'm going to offer the few I made as complete kits in the JY or Project Run area (still need to make more hollow clamp spacers).
