    Thats good advice from Walnut John - clean it out before hand.

    Also you'll have to get it red hot [almost white hot] to get some dents out, and don't be afriad to give the dent a tap with a hammer to help it pop.

    PS - you can do my exhaust after yours [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    What solvent is best to use?

    Think you had better see how mine turns out before you ask me to do yours [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    That was my initial thought [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Would it then take off or explode?
