I agree that a spliced in tube replacement is easier to do then a full length one. I've done a very few full tube and spliced in jobs. One difference that I will note is the customer's opinion. I have had a chance to do a few more tube replacements over the years and when I mentioned my choice to do a spliced in one I lost credibility in their eyes. As though using a lower cost method that fully retained all the joint craft that the OEM builder/brand used was somehow wrong. Andy
