Seen thread on here, and I didnt save it. Having a hell of a time going though hundreds of similar subject threads to find it. Well, the thread was a howto with pictures and the installer cut one exhaust triangle all the way though and the other one only deep enough to take off the shield without going all the way though the can.

Any help would be appreciated.

I installed last night, here's a few tips I learned:

1. You may want to buy 1 size larger rivets
2. use JB Weld on the rivets
3. Practice getting rivets really tight on some practice objects
4. Have a good grinder cutting wheel for the spot welds
5. cover the muffler up with tape or something before grinding the welds as the sparks may mark up the mufflers

Because the damn things have a tendency to vibrate loose turning into annoying castanets. Doing any job twice sucks.
