    Looks good, seem to stick out a bit though.

    Assume all joints etc are sealed up ok?

    ye i thought the same bit to far out for my liking its because i have had to use a connector and its pushed the exhaust back about 20 mm but ye all sealed av tested them for leaks with a bubble tester and all is good

    As my Dad would say, "If it’s free and it’s useful, then make use of it"

    Used pallets before to get an engine into a bike, it was easier to put the engine on the pallets and lift the frame over the engine. Ahh the good old days.

    Think the rear of your Vectra looks really nice. How far are they sticking out? Looks about 40 -50 mm, When I replaced the front pipe I had to persuade it, to make sure it went all the way in as there was a tight spot, are you sure all the pipes are as far in as they should be and sitting correctly ?
