    Todays Progress

    Well finally got my new backbox this morning and this is how the day progressed.



    Then on the ramp getting old one off



    New Exhaust





    Now I know before anyone tells me it needs adjusting, not really happy with the bracket it came supplied with but you can only do what you can do. Its gonna have to sit like that for a couple of weeks until I can get my master welder to look at it.

    Any and all comments Welcome

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Not happy with the fitting at all just needs the bracket modifying to get it sitting true in the cut out in the bumper

    thats a good size tailpipe, it just needs to sit a little better with the bumper. way better than that jap, slash cut back box you had irrespective of how it sounds.
