    Anybody Reusing Gaskets After D-Plate Install??

    Instructions say you can reuse exhaust gaskets. Riva was out of them, and on top of that they were $100.00!! Was going to use new gaskets, until I found this out......

    If the coating isn't damaged and the gasket isn't kinked re-use them. I smear a coat of 3Bond 1211 on mine when I re-use them.

    I reuse mine. Coppercoat or 1211 works great.

    Yep

    like they said if they are not damaged I reuse them. A little sealant helps
