broken vacume pipe(repair)

one of the most annoying things happened the other day, i was taking the injector manifold off and the vacume pipe by the throttle body broke. now iv ordered a new one (second hand) off fleabay but i thought i would share my repair
bought a length of 6mm pipe threaded half inch up the pipe with a 1/4 x 26 die cut the pipe off at 1" 1/2 then tapped the the hole where the old pipe broke off ( i used a drill the same bore diameter as the pipe)screwed the part in and sealed it with chemical metal, all good to goas the pipe is the correct bore as the original. (as ive got 2 ZRs and a 45 this wont go to waste its going back on in the morning and the new part can go for my spare engine)
