like everyone already said, drill out the rivets, all of the rivet not just the head, the end cap will slide off, it is glued in place so it will take some convincing. Keep in mind, the end cap will show all the pry marks if you pry against it, the other part of the pipe will be cut off so try to gouge the carbon/stainless section that you will be cutting off rather than the end cap. Once endcap is off, cut the two tubes, and slide them back together the same way tehy came apart, drill new holes for rivets and pop them suckers back on.

Best thing i can tell you is be sure to measure alot.

for example, my pipe was 18 inches long (the carbon part) so i cut 7 inches off of the carbon. When i openeed the thing up i also cut exactly 7 inches off of the inside. Just leave the steel whool where it is and dont try to cram extra stuff in there.

if it sounds to complicated come over to my house and ill do it for $20. Pearland area, pm me if interested
