    i put a de cat on my disco last week and then the back box fell of and i was stood there thinking "that cat would make an awsome side exit " so i got the angle gringer and welder out and had a go, the only thing i bought was a new grinding disc it cost me nothing to make and about 1 1/2 hours to do, only problem i encountered was i cut the hole and finished the exhaust but it was hitting the body so i had to cut a bigger hole

    welded the old hanger on to support it

    this was it finished but hole was to small so had to cut this one and finished it off with a rubber strip i actually had left over from my snorkel kit

    Have you kept the front silencer or is it now a straight through system?

    Looks well, nice to see old parts being turned into useful parts... How does it sound with just the center box?
