The plastic cover which covers the.. well, plastic exhaust cover, and seperates the two "cans" to make it appear like it's two pieces (the longer I look at it, the more I'm starting to dislike it quite a lot).

After you install the FE Kit, the bottom of this piece is now loose and it keeps poking out further from the exhaust which makes it even more obvious that the exhaust is some cheap plastic. Are you guys doing anything to fix it?

I guess I should just swallow my pride and install some scorpions or something. :pisson

I just used a small, black zip tie to hold it in place. Can't even see it unless you get your nose right in there.

Thats the same thing I did. Get the zip tie on tight and cut off the slack, you'll eventually forget it's even there and nobody will see it if you use the really small zip ties.

I dont think anyone has said to use a zip tie to hold it down yet. I read that in the instructions. You should read instuctions more carefully jay!

Leave the guy some slack. You guys are starting to get brutal to Jay.:lao

So, Jay, did you figure out how to rightly put in the zip tie onto the piece which you were supposed to put the zip tie in in the first place?:bitchslap

+ 18 on the zip tie.... but I drilled a hole in the bottom of the plastic piece and went through the old fender screw hole in the mounting bracket. It moves the tie under the mount so it's even less noticable. You can actually pull it a little tighter at that point...not too much to stress the plastic though.

I don' know why all of you guys are overlooking the obvious answer. Just use a zip tie.

Well, I didn't think he wanted to go with the more traditional baling wire and duct tape!
