    started on the exhausts this weekend got most of the way thro but ran out of materials so gonna have to order some more this coming week and finish it then, as ive gone 3" straight thro ive had to get it up as high as possible to avoid the ground
    i think its high enough we will soon see

    the right side isnt supported here so looks lower
