    Good luck! I tried this about three months ago and didn't get any help. I got some from A3U and I'm not happy with them. First of all one of my stacks was broken so I have the originals to compare. A3U are not as shiny as the originals and they do not fit correctly so the spring action does not work properly. I haven't tried to modify them yet so that they fit right. It's going to require sanding of the large hole.

    I really wish Takara would make these available along with other accesories, i.e. Black Gun, Spike and so on. I just superglued the broken stack and put them back on. It looks and works great except for the noticable crack and ever so slight misalignment.

    I have had no problems with the smokestacks from A3U. They work great.

    I made my own extra long stacks out of styrene. Some people here don't like them, but I think this length makes for a more realistic look. I'm contemplating about putting side mirrors on.

    I keep thinking I might cut some extending metal aerial tubing down to slot over the short stacks. At least then they'd already have the chromed look. And then I'll cap off the ends with some kind of silver studs.
