Improving the rear end of my EA

Hey noticed a few of you dudes have exhaust tips on your cars. The rear end of my car is looking a bit haggard atm with the silver bumber strip turning black and the exhaust jutting out with a very dull 2 inch fakie metal pipe on an angle, (suposed to be a tip I guess).

I was just wondering how you guys attached your exhaust tips? I went out to the car for a bit of a look and I found that I woulld have to cut the exhaust pipe to make the tip fit on and look anygood (so the pipe dosnt stick through the actual tip). I was just wondering how you guys did this as I rather like this tip that I found on Jacks site:
http://www.eafalcon.com/ownersclub/p...2/DCP_0816.jpg

For me to achieve this I would have to cut all the way into the in dull 2 inch fakie metal pipe and then into a slightly smaller one that stays straight for around 2cm and then snakes into the muffler.

My concern is what hold these exhausts tips in place? From memory they just sit flush with the orginal and also would it be hard to find an exhaust tip for the slightly smaller exhaust pipe that connects to the 2 inch fakie one because it is slightly smaller and is not a regular size?

Also how do I purchase the new silver strip for the rear I've hear its around $5 from ford.

Hope you guys understand this thanks :)

Re: Improving the rear end of my EA

My suggestion would be to remove whatever is over the original exhaust pipe because you probably wont find a tip that will fit over both the original pipe and whatever is already on top snuggly. Most of the tips I've come across fit over your existing exhaust pipe pretty snuggly and wont come off without extreme force.

If you want to attach it more securely you could weld it on or do what alot of my mates do and drill a hole through the tip and exhaust pipe and pop-rivet it.

As for the silver strip it's sold by the metre at Ford for around $4 per metre and comes in chrome, grey and red, all it is is an adhesive strip that sits in the bumper bar.

Re: Improving the rear end of my EA

There isn't an actual tip on there allready it just flanges out from the smaller pipe to make the end look bigger but it is the same pipe.

Re: Improving the rear end of my EA

My mates went to a wrecker and picked me up a 2 inch round exhaust tip. I need to work on securing it as the first pop rivet attempt was not a success.

Anyway I am going to fix up this hopefully tommorow and I really want to know how you replace the side strip????!!!

Do you just peel of the old one and purchase a new one from ford and apply it like contact? I am going to by 2 meters for the back tommorow and it would be madschool if I could get the sides done aswell. How much does it cost if anybody has done this?

Re: Improving the rear end of my EA

To do the sides you have to replace the whole grey plastic mould stuck to the side of the doors which is quite costly to buy new from Ford ($170 for one side I think it is??? someone correct me if I'm wrong). My suggestion would be to find a sticker maker or try autobarn and get some chrome sticker/pinstriping and putting it over the part where the chrome strip is on the side moulds
