Annoying that the ep91 na brake pipes are covered right to the back apart from the last inch or so under the rear arch which is the only corroded section.
Are there any premade pipe kits out or an I going to have to make them up myself?
As it just an inch at end of either side rear pipe is it OK to cut the old pipe far enough up the plastic sleeve, remove a small section of the plastic sleeve and put a joiner union on and just make up the bad section ?

The proper thing to do would be replace the whole lot. Anything else is a bit of a bodge
