Couldn't wait, mounted the exhaust yesterday. Had to chop another foot off the donor, but got it in and lined up beautifully!
Pics to follow.....

Great progress Alex , looking gud ,if I can give you one tip it would be to rub all the metal frame work down and stick some primer on it as you go ,it's just a pain to do it all later when it's gone rusty ,hope this helps cheers jd .

Ps you mentioned about the front end in my opinion it looks much better to join the wings together with the front panel as it is with the genuine car ,you can still unbolt the front end as one piece and remove it  if you need to cheers jd .

Thanx for the tip JD, will defo do that now

Hi guys, had a long chat with Kev at extreme today, after ringing to originally order the light kit and glass kit, Kev explained that it is best to get the heavy stuff like suspension, wheel arch mods etc, done first before final bonding which I am happy to agree with, therefore, have now ordered the suzzy mod kit and wheel adapters/ spacers which I hope to pick up from them in the next four weeks....
Am really looking forward to seeing their operation and having an in depth conversation with the lads at extreme.
One of the many points raised, was that it would be best to modify the rear compartment where my back box is located, to allow more airflow around it and separate it from the interior of the car, so will be looking at this tomorrow and the weekend to see if I can get this done.
Mainly looking to cut away the rear boot plates, leaving the area where the mounting points for the exhaust where they are.
Will post some pics once completed
Cheers
Alex360

Hi Alex
Don't know if you have bought some rubber mounts for your exhaust yet, I have bought some MG Midget Gearbox Mounts ( eBay item number 251640792073 )
They offer up to my OEM exhaust perfectly

Thanks guys,
I will be putting a plate between the back box and the rear seat area as described, and mickey, have already got some mounts this morning but if they don't fit, will defo get the mg ones you recommended.
Thanks very much for your input, always open to suggestions.
Made my own exhaust "y" today, went quite well, will post pics later. Just got to make the links to the back box tomorrow, and wait for Santa JD to deliver my toys :)
Cut out the front lights today and quarter vents, loving the black and decker powerfile!!

Took ages to get the angles right, then had to weld different diameter collars on to the pipe to snugly fit the 360 intakes
