Talking CUT MY CAN PLZZ?!?!?

Hey guys,

I have a yosh Ride Smart-3 can on my SV that i bought second hand. sadly one of the rivets on the header end is lose and leaking a small amount of air (can has some rash there from previous owner).

I figure the best way to fix it is to cut the can down to a stubby.

BUT I DONT KNOW HOW!! (correction: im certian i would F-it-up)

Would anyone here be willing to help me cut my can. I'll Throw in some Brew-dogs of course pay for cost of parts (as long as its cheaper than buying a new can :-p)

If your that awsome person who wants to help a brotha out lemme know

If I wasn't on my phone I'd send you a couple links.
Easiest way is to create a www.photobucket.com account, download there then just copy and paste the link from each individual pic on here. After you download a pic, you can hover your mouse over it and it will display 4 links. Copy the 4th (last) one and just post here.
If pic is too big you can also resize on phototbucket. 800x600 is the size I like to use. Getting it all started and figured out takes a just a bit of figuring it out. Once you get it, you can download and post in a mtter of seconds.
