My pipes are a little corroded/rusty at the ends. What are my options of fixing it? Thanks

take it to a exhaust shop and have them put some actual tips on there... the problem is that you just have straight piping, and no tips

20-500$

Depends on what tips you want and if you do it your self or take it somewhere.

You can get cheap chrome tips that may start top rust in a year or two for like $10 each or so or you can get good stainless tips for around $30+ each and they will last a long time.

How about stock tips? (that originally came on the car before someone decided they should be off)

Put the tips on myself? they just push on right?


I'm so terrible...

The stock SSE/SSEi tips bolt on to the Bumper, and the exhaust tip just sit behind it.

and sense the Stock tip is square not round, you going to have to bend or flatten you end of you exhaust to make it look right.

I dont have pics of mine right now but ill try to fins some on here or someone else will post them

If you borrowed a pipe cutter and clamped them on it would save a little.

My total for the dual chrome round rolled edge tip from hottexhaust.com was about $140.00 installed at Car-X
