I dont even know if its rust, its a discolouration between the pipes and has some little spots on the surface.

gotta love some of the s**t stories that exhaust shops come up with..... my local guy is a holden nut (tho he drives a hilux) and IMO is usually on the ball..... tho he hates stainless exhausts....

Hi All,

Just for future reference cutting the tip back can cause damage to the bar. I know this as I have just obtained a fairlane that had been butchered by the previous owner and melted the bumper and the tail light.
