    Crimped the end of the pipe and placed it in the fitting. Crimpers are what you need but for 3" you can just use needlenose pliers.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

          Hardly even worth talking about. You will lose more gas from around the collar every time the wind blows than you EVER will from having the flu fittings turned. And it's in a garage, in California? Sheesh, don't worry about it. Tape it up with metal tape and be done with it.

            For some reason the pics of the repair aren't coming up on my screen. Ironranger is right I don't think there's really a health risk involved from the description. However, personally I would go redo it so it's correct. It should cost you little time and materials, but your customer will respect you more and you may get more recommendations as a result. Most importantly your own self respect will improve. (Not that you're necessarily lacking or need any.)

            Lastly I like the room you have in your van. Aluminum shelving. Nice! What kind of mpg do you get with an 06 Sprinter with a box on the back?

                  Bugs bunny could have done a better job. WTH??? How can you do installs like that and actually sleep at night?

                  EDIT: I didn't mean what I said towards Matt....I reread my post and it seemed like I did, so i just wanted to clarify.

                        Looks like some Quest pipe and valves mixed in. RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN! I just won't touch that stuff anymore unless I do a complete whole house re-pipe.

                          LOL, I did the inspection for the buyer on this house a few years ago, It had recently flooded out due to the plumbing in the bathroom looking just like this. I did not get the repair after I estimated the repair at a full tear out inspection and re-pipe... Come to think of it I think that is when all real estate agents stopped calling me, they are the devil anyway good riddance...LOL

                            That's one that you'd have to look at for a while to figure out how to clean it up!

                              Nice! Thanks for the laugh. I once saw a cast iron main vent stack that must have failed at one point because there was a six foot section that was patched together with old rain gutter downspout and black roofing cement in the attic. The homeowner was not happy when I asked if I could take a pic of it. (We were replacing a boiler and installing a chimney liner not working on the plumbing).
