    Default De cating is easy!!

    Well yesterday while doing marks @cont1204 clutch

    we agreed to stick decat pipe on whilst everything off makes thing easier!

    well after several attempts its decided only action to get the actual decat pipe to fit would be with some welding.

    since we didn't have that

    plan b came into action.

    rip the innards out of the cat.

    so @woodpeck & @cont1204.

    Spent a good hour drilling an hammering until finally it was a nice decat lol

    heres some action shots
    whilst I stood twiddling me thumbs lol

    Piece of cake wasn't it.

    Only took 4 drills, a hammer, chisel and a few screwdrivers.

    All in all a very successful day then!

    I was going to take a core-drill to my DPF, but I guess the precat is a bit more difficult as I think both pipes entering it are curved IIRC?
