So the short of it is i took the rear bar off and didnt have time to put it back on.

Reversed into a short pole the next day couldnt find any damage until i put the bar back on.
I had lost an inch and a half. Not in my shorts but in the exhaust length as it was way too short, to the point where it was hidden behind the body kit.

Got it bent back and extended to the length desired and thought i'd use the opportunity for a new tip.

Thought i'd show it off before it gets scratched but
I've already scratched the tip, since my driveways so steep, but sh** happens.

Total $65 later im 1 happy camper as the pics show.

in my honest opinion.....looks awkward and doesn't seem to suit it very well. maybe if it was pushed in a little and also a little higher?

Belive it or not i tried on an oval tip, looked great but it was too big and hence it would have got too close to the bar.

Like the previous tip, the oval (same design as pics) one was too close and started burning/melting the bumper bar away which is a bit of a no no for me. Locating the oval tip any lower would cause it to drag or scratch when goin up my driveway

In the end i found this 1 fit perfectly and looked a treat. :lol:
