Great and helpful site guys! I was helping my friend install the exhaust bellow on an alpha 1. What a fun job without the proper tool! We forgot to put those metal clips on either end of the hose. What is the purpose of those clips? and can he get away without them or do we have to take that s.o.b. hose off again and put them on?

Thanks for your help!!

"The clips provide a direct path to ground local to the glued and clamped area that needs to stay sealed. Without the clips, over time there will be a corrosion issue at the bellows."
