I installed one of CJDesigns SS Oil Drain Lines the other day. This will definitely make oil changes quicker and easier! However, there was one thing about the installation that I did not like. The idea of the SS line and plastic end laying on the skid plate, bouncing around did not sound like a good idea. As I was taking a ride yesterday, I give it some thought and come up first with the idea of simply wrapping the hose end in a rag/towel to insulated it from possible damage from bouncing around down there. Then I remembered that I have some one inch foam pipe insulation, so I dropped the plate, cut about 7" of the foam tube and slipped it over the end of the hose. It fits such that I don't think it can come off, it can be removed instantly and it weighs near nothing! Assuming that the residues that find its way to the skid plate don't deteriorate the foam, I think the modification to the modification will work quite well and give that added peace of mind!
