Change your front side skirts to BA as well, at the moment with the BA/AU mix it looks all wrong. Spoils the look of the car.

As for being called an idiot, don't worry to much about it, there have been enough goose heads on here that go on about gitting cats etc. If you don't do it that is good, if you do now that you have been told how illegal it is, then you are an idiot and you deserve what you will get. I know you will do the right thing and therefore not be an idiot.

Word of advice to REW93N, don't give advice on what you don't know, make you out to be an idiot. I am sure you know what I mean. You are wanting to start a Mechanical trade, think what your new boss would think. Just a thought, take it or leave it, some of us old bastards do know a thing to two.

And what exactly don't I know, SWC?
I know that you old blokes have a heap of experience by doing what is wrong then learning from your mistakes, and I admire that, but most of the time what I say is through things I have either picked up from people I know that have had the same experiences as you lot, or knowledge I have picked up from this very website.
And in the above instance, I was sticking up for a mate, which is more important than looking like an idiot in my books.

Sticking up for a mate is good and well done to you, I have no issue with that at all.

Removal or gutting of a catalytic convertor is illegal and carries a massive fine as well as EPA issues, defect etc, that is what I have an issue with. A mistake in that area isn't a mistake and supporting that does not make you look any better at all. You are a bright boy, think, listen and learn. You will do OK.

I get you, and yeah, I know it probably isn't the best move, deleting a cat.
At least MA77US didn't do it.
