Get cutting Carpy, it's good therapy.
I used to be scared of cutting stuff up in case I "stuffed" up!!
But I'm really getting into it now and treat it like metal (I'm a boilermaker by trade). If it can be cut off, it can be glued back on with no worries.........

Yep stock looking but imagine it a bit noisier Very Happy
Still want to find or make fishtail type exhaust tips though.

Umm prison camp is just that....
No guys, not real prison, just where I'm working in Melbourne at the moment, concrete walls, no windows or radios and very tight security, swipe doors and gates etc....just like prison LOL
Thank .... goodness I'll be home Friday night and straight back into the flathead.
