Thinking of getting a Cat Back Exhaust and fitting it myself.
What should I need to know?

Is it just a lot of bolts, wriggling and struggling against sizzed pipes.

Pretty much it. Put the rears on ramp and jack the front will give you ample room to do all that underneath the car.

if you cars lowered a fair bit, sometimes even on ramps you wont be able to get the tail pipe off.

Yeah I normally prefer to do it myself, as I'm not to keen on having others work on my car.
But after fitting a full exhuast on the falcon I work out it was way to much a pain in the a** and take it to an exhust joint from now on, the guy I use is cheap as ever so phone around.

Allthe bolts were f**k and could get tools onto as thy were to close to the pipes and the tail sectin wold split without a hacksaw, and onstant dirt in your eyes, f**k C*** of a job, but then agan couldve picked a betters situation to do it in.
