    Default Exhaust Trim Installation

    Hi all,

    I'm thinking of getting a couple of 'fatter' exhaust trim type things - like Payney's, but I'm struggling of where to locate some half decent ones.

    I've looked on e-bay (http://http://search.ebay.co.uk/exhaust-trim) , but they look a bit naff.

    Would it just be a case of going to a garage to cut the existing pipes off my car, and weld/attach the new ones?

    I'm after a bigger/fatter 'oval shape' (x2) than that is currently on the 2.2directs, but dont want a whole system/back box.

    Thanks

    link dont work. TBH itl be best to get a universal back box if you want that or you can try welding on but the metal might be a bit thin to weld to. ask a welder before trying anything

    i'm an ex-welder ( i've moved on better things now ) and it can be welded no problem. it is only a matter of using the correct process. ie: MIG or TIG. Look a for local steel firm who specialise in working aluminium or stainless steel, (you'll find these in the yellow pages) and take the exhaust to them. If you familiarise yourself with how to drop the exhaust off, you could drive the car to the local firm and drop the exhaust of there and wait on it to be done. It only takes about 30-45mins. The price can vary wildly though. I've worked in firms that charged anything between £50-£100 beer tokens to get it done. If you seek out a local small firm, ie:someone working from thier shed, you could get it done for £10 or £20 quid.
