Default Getting Thrush Installed and Dent Fixed

I'm about to head over to the muffler shop and here's some pics before I go, maybe I'll get some after, and maybe a video. :P

Why not just go muffler free? Just asking. I'm sure you have a good answer. My 04 sounds great with out mufflers. I'm interested on the sound. Please do a video. Just in the case I like the thrushers better. One thing for sure. They will look great with your Black Monte.

It's going where the resonator is. If I don't like the sound I'll get the mufflers removed later. Straight piping it would attract too much 5-0 attention for someone on pre-trial diversion. Hopefully just the thrush and mufflers will have a good tone.

I figured there's no use in spending money twice, test it out with the mufflers on first and if I don't like it go from there

Your monte is way better than mine though, you have everything I want basically. :/

My rear wheel wells have rust , too bad they aren't $50 like the front ones where you can take them off and put new ones on yourself. Oh yeah and the sport cast wheels suck, the diamond-cut ones don't. I want roof rails too, but I'm not crazy about spending around $200 for some plastic :/ I went to the junkyard a while ago and someone had already grabbed the ones from the only 40th anniversery gp there, they took every other thing like that off the car too.

You also have a high sport package and I don't lol.

my rear wheel was rusted out pretty bad, got it fixed though, the other side too also some rust but its just a tiny bit lol
i paid $140 for my roof rails but you just have to keep a lookout and you can get them for cheap
but then again i got a SUPER GREAT deal on my monte high miles but it still looks pretty good

Just hang in there and keep modding and you'll get your monte looking good.

Just got the car back, it sounds better but not by much. It's still too quiet for me, you still can't hear the idle and you can hear the power stering over the exhaust.
