well since this is my first post, thought i'd do it properly. with pictures. this is my baby, tell me what you think and what should be done differently.



my fabricated exhaust, coming out the passenger side. no muffler or resonator. just cat. nice and loud.



another front pic.



i have since put new drilled slotted rotors and painted the calipers the obligatory shade of red.



be gentle, most work has been done by me... [/img]

Blacked out look looks cool. Would also look neat IMO if the exhaust tip was chrome and a little larger. Smile

Everything being subjective and opinion, of course.

I think the car looks pretty decent, but I would scratch the side exhaust. It definitely looks home-made.

Got some minor rust behind the rear doors. I can't complain much, I have some at the back of my front fenders Laughing

i reduced the size of the pipe from the 2 and a quarter to one a 3/4. and that tip my buddy made for me outta the spare pipe.

the reason i reduced the size is well.... the way it idles it sounds like a v8. it burbles and cackels and spits fire and s**t. like a real mans car.

well... maybe not spit fire....

yet.

Do you have any video of how it sounds? I'm curious to see how it sounds out the side.

the current tip is welded in place, so it'll be difficult to change that out. besides, i kinda like it. doesnt draw much attention. its my little shot gun.

maybe so, but i'll take "uncool" in the eyes of one guy just to feel special that i know of no one else who has done that.
you know what i mean? i like it.

and the other thread has a video, so the sound justifies it.

Don't feel too special. It's been done by a few people around here. This is the only one I was able to find using the Google search, but I think his looks a lot more finished than yours.
