    neeeagh.... so annoying

    i got my new sebring exhaust for christmas (yay)

    i had my remus centre section waiting that i had bought myself (yay)

    today i went about fitting the pair together....


    first i just fitted the sebring box and all was well - went for a quick drive to hear what it was like and to turn the car around over the pit to give me easier access to the front underside for the removal of the centre section.

    fitted the remus centre section, re-fitted the sebring back box... and then noticed the ends of the bolts (that hold the backbox and centre section together) have stripped! so i can't get them to bite.

    and of course vaux ain't going to be open till tuesday - kind of hoping kwik fit might be open tomorrow and have the bits i need.

    any bright ideas/comments/piss taking?

    sounds pretty nice on it's own... waiting to hear it with the remus section on, as that removes a massive silencer. little worried it may be toooo loud after that though!

    and yeah, tried re cutting the threads but they are utterly fubar-ed.

    Usually I'd be only too willing but as it's you, and I have always considered you to be a man with exquisite taste, then I shall refrain.

    Should be great when you get it on though, those mid-sections are about 8 miles long!

    EDIT: PS. pictures of your car are always welcome my man.

    it's all fitted.... it's just the remus section isn't connected up to the back box lol. as long as you aren't underneath the car you can't tell - until you start it up and it sounds like a horribly blown exhaust of course!

    i'm sure once it's all done i could wash the 3mm layer of crud off my car and take some pics.

    and cheers for the compliments.... lol

    If you have trouble sourcing the bolts I probably got a few...... They're on the car at the moment so if you give me £2750 I'll throw the rest of the car in for free.
