Cutting down my Exhaust tonight...... Now with pics

Any helpful tips out there? I have a set of Cobra Speedster Slash cut that I'm tired of and think they would look better with about 12in cut off. So I am breaking out the angle grinder with the metal cutting blade!

Before

After(Sorry about this pic its with my phone, I'll get better ones this weekend)

use some masking tape at the point you are going to cut going 3 to 4 layers thick this will protect the crome from getting scratched

:agree: also after your done cutting take a fine file and take down the sharp edges with the tape still on. post pics up when finished

looks great how do they sound:bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:
I have to wait until I can pick a battery up tomorrow. Mine is DEAD!!.... I can't wait to hear it. I want to change my exhaust but didn't have the extra cash for it at the moment, So I cut off about 14 inches. It looks a lot meaner with them short. It will definitely be LOUD but I always say loud pipes saves lives. :bigthumbsup:

I like the look Carlos, just don't know how you cut them so straight with an angle grinder. :bigthumbsup:
Me and my bro did it. We just took our time and they came out pretty decent. File the rough edges down.
