Default Finally Added Some Exhaust Tips

After about a year with my SSEi dual exhaust system from Ed Morad on my SE, I found some tips that I think work pretty well. I knew the cowbells that came with the system would look awful without bumper cutouts so I cut them off and left it like it was. I found some fairly short full-rolled tips that I painted black except for the ends. The rear bumper cover on the SE'* rakes up steeply after the rear wheels and you can see a lot of the exhaust system beyond the muffler from the sides. Painting the tips black did the trick of taking attention away from that area. I painted the rest of the exhaust system from the mufflers back as well to match everything up.

"Stealth"--I like it.

I do live only about 45 miles from Whiteman AFB where they keep all of the B-2'* so I guess that will work. They fly over Columbia every Thursday evening.

It was tough scuffing up the chrome and then painting them flat black but I just think it looks better.

i like the look from the rear, but they look a bit too far back on the first picture. I'd almost be concerned about carbon monoxide when the car is idling....
