    So I my luck was 98% there with my custom fuel tank. The exhaust rubs on the corner of the tank. I would like to put something to sit between them. Thinking felt....but what you all think?

    I would really try to move one or the other. Something should give.

    They don’t, vibration brings them back together

    I would think a plate to keep them seperate and to not allow them to rub together, if it rattles, then put rubber on the plate both sides if need be

    you probably should get a thermal barrier type material to wrap exhaust if anything i would try to add clearance to the immediate area on the exhaust pipe(dimpling) . jegs has some products that might be helpful. definitely do not want them touching .

    I would take the exhaust pipe out, bend it to gain the needed clearance, then reinstall it.

    I would clearance the pipe a small ding with a hammer just a little. I could not stand a pipe rubbing on something or tack weld the pipe so it can,t move
