It won't be a bolt on job. The pipe will have to be welded on and I'm not sure there is provision for exhaust rubber on LHS.
Then there is the question of where will the tips fit?

Right  then all done dont look that bad no real change  in exhaust note but it is a diesel this was done just for the look .took me 4 hrs to do bit of a git to put LHS bracket on  as it was really close to fuel line but took my time and had a fire extinguisher at the ready just in case LOL and covered lines in tinfoil well it worked while i was welding

Did you use a bituminous compound to protect the floor after welding. Need to stop rust weakening your bracket. Looks good.

Are you converting the whole exhaust to stainless or just the rear section you have replaced?

Is it worth the effort if only changing the rear, it's not something that people are under the car admiring unless you are planning on a show car and you have the chrome tips which is all anyone will ever see.

You'd get more benefit spending money upgrading the catalytic converter and muffler to free flowing imo.

That sounds like a plan, at least you/car should get a slight benefit in performance other than just aesthetics :goodjob2:

 :whsaid: And you can always replace it with a stainless one in a few years if you keep the car long term and this one deteriorates.
