Stacks and rain?

Maybe a stupid question but what do you all with stacks or those without and know about it, but what do you do with mitre cut stacks and it rains? Do you not worry about it cause youll just blow it all out, or do you run out there and cover em up?

I'd drill a small hole in the 90 or thread a pet**** in there and drain it after it rains. A buddy of mine has stacks on his 97 and no hole for drainage and he'll take off and that sooty water all over this truck.

You can get raincaps for mitre cut...The caps are on the inside of the pipe...

For my 6" mitres I made a couple of covers out of 6" irrigation pipe caps and panited them. They have the rubber gaskets inside and don't move if the wind's blowing.

The pipe caps sound slick. A lot of guys have some variation of a cover or a bleach jug, etc. I think it would just be easiest to drill small drain hole at the lowest point. Of course the inside of the stacks will still get wet and will still blow a mess all over the place. A cover is the only way to prevent that.
