Today's update, and once again it didn't go without a hitch. Always an issue with me and this car....
The exhaust was fired in the boot and made the trip up to see Mick, got it all out and let the man go about what he does best. Then the problem became apparent. Old exhaust off fine, new exhaust did not want to line up properly. Sitting too far to the right with no room for adjustment. Now i don't know if it has taken a knock at some point, but wasn't for fitting. Middle section was rather close to the fuel tank and wasn't looking good.
But Mick came through with a bit of "fine tweaking" shall we say using a different set of rubbers and a jubilee clip
So it got fitted, and sounds sweet as a nut! Got a bit louder on the way home and sounds the business. It still sits ever so slightly to the right, but considering how it was fitting at first then it is a vast improvement, and only the extremely anal will see it as an issue. I think it looks the dugs danglies
Sorry forgot to take pics when up on the ramps as the problem got me slightly sidetracked, but took a few fitted when i brought it home. And it is still on the car in the position it was supposed to be so it's all good. Anyway here we go......
Old system, seen better days. Cheerie Bye!!!!!!!
New system fitted to the car, sounding sweet and worth the ear bashing for buying it i will get
I wanted something that looked like a factory finish, not an oval but something that would sit in the bumper recess nicely.
Opinions, good bad and ugly
