Attention: This is how not to do it.

So I have the old one off. Nothing too eventful, but manhandling everything by yourself is always fun. Didn't botch cutting the rearmost set of hangers off on the rear muffler, yay. Using the stock hanger for the rear muffler.

I test fit the resonator and test pipe: fitment is not on point. I'll have to evaluate things to see if I need to use a different hanger for the resonator, if the test pipe need to be cut down or if I need to cut the end of the downpipe. I know when I fit it, the test pipe was close to hitting the floor because the bends weren't falling in the right spot.
