I will do some practice flares & bends before starting . Better safe than sorry.
Just wondering, double flares? Bubba

The plan as of right now is to do single flares.
It is what was there originally and they lasted for decades.

I have the cushion clips.
Should I attach them to the underside with rivets or with stainless sheet metal screws?
Thank you.

Propane Copper Pipe Hangers

I would use stainless steel screws and an internal tooth lock washer just to be safer from vibration. I like to be able to easily fix stuff. If you routinely carry an electric drill, bits, and a pop rivet tool, have at it with wide head pop rivets.

Your repair habits rule the correct answer. Admittedly I carry the drill and all the other stuff as well. Just donít like to drill out rivets over my face while lying under the AS.

I like the idea of screws and lock washers. Thank you.
I don't much care for drilling things out over my face either.
Drilling for the new belly pan into the new crossmembers and outriggers was unpleasant at best.

Yeah, the burning hot chips of metal falling down on face and body arenít pleasant....

I used black pipe for my long run under the trailer and then branched with copper....

My next project will use something like this..... Click image for larger version

I dress like a bee keeper when I drill under the trailer. Those chips always find a way in though. They only seem to find the most tender skin too.
My long run is only about 7 feet to the first branch. I'm using copper.
