Sounds good mick, good stuff!

But i think they must have a 2yr old working at carline, and they must have welded the system up. That is some shocking welding!!! and the bends arent very pretty either. sorry just a bit of winge about it, but the rest looks good.

Good stuff mate, glad your happy with it.
I'd be cutting those tips back though so they are flush with the exit.

Cheer Ben,

Don't rain on my parade mate :lol: Nah, It's OK, :) for some reason the pipes look shocking in the pics, but they're not that bad, and yeah the whole system is welded up I think. Haven't crawled underneath yet to have a thorough look. Sounds fine though, so I can deal with the welding.

XH5LWEPN, the chrome tips are just a cheap pair of slip on ones from supa cheap, and I just slapped them on before I took the pics, but I am probably going to cut the pipes back a bit so that you can't see the end of the pipes.

Thanks FF, I called in to check on the progress and he had just finished the second set of hotdogs. He fired it up for me and it sounded even better than it does now, but it was just too loud, so we decided to fit 2 more hotdogs at the rear to tone it down a bit.

Thanks for all the positive comments fella's, and Yeah, I am very bloody happy with it, now to piss off the clutch fan so it will sound even better :D

Can't agree more! So long there are no leaks, who cares what a car looks like underneath I say:)

My thoughts exactly Banarcus, the pics don't do it justice. I thought he did a pretty good job, but then again I'm no expert welder either so what would I know :?
