Roll the form on a small diameter piece of PVC pipe, say 0.75" for a 4" pvc
outer form. Cut a slot in the tube so the al flashing slots into the inner
pipe. This is now relatively isolated from the roll form and I used
pop-rivets to a strap cut from the flashing roll. Caps now over 1 year old
and OK. Likewise, you can use a strap and rivetts for the outside
connection. Just make sure you have the "rounded heads" facing the roll
proper and place an extra layer (or 3) under the heads.
