you may get away with a bunch of metal ties. im just using one on the top and one at the bottom of the DP. the mani might be alright because the wrap cant slide down.

the dp just didn't look 3 inch which is why i asked.

I don't know what kind of wrap you used but i mine i bought from CIP and looked sweet for like the first week and then started to fade. and now it is normal color, thought it still looks better than crappy metal piping. I have seen some old school muscle cars and such with black wrap, so you may be alright if it is a different brand than mine.

i used mechanics wire to tie my wrap on, it worked great, and it was hard to see because it was just small metal wire!
