    Default Quick question about exhausts

    I'm hoping you really helpful guys on here can give me a bit of advice.

    Basically the outer skins on my back boxes have given up the ghost so I would like to replace them. Rest of the exhaust system is fine
    However being a Yorkshireman (tight) I'm working to a budget. So my thought was just to buy 2 universal backboxes in the style I want and then attach them via exhaust Flexi hose to the y piece. So is this going to be possible? and will it withstand the rigours of everyday driving?

    Also while I was at it I was considering replacing the cat with Flexi hose as well.

    Dont want to spend more than £250 really, so whats your thoughts guys?

    You'll be able to get replica SRi backboxes from Ebay for well under £250.

    Sorry I should have mentioned, I was hoping to try and get something slightly different from the standard boxes.

    Peel them off and so so long as it's not blowing jump in and drive it and spend your cash on beer.

    Ah fair enough. As others have said, just pull off what is left of the skin so it can't shake around and make a noise then forget about it. Pulled mine off the backbox months ago.

    When the outer skin rusts, your exhaust is only half-worn. lol
