Hi Peter,
Glad to see it'* coming back together. I took a look under my car just after this happened to you to check it out, and was pleased to see mine was okay. Can you suggest any preventative maintenance we can perform to prevent this from happening? (ie: Keeping it clean, adding spray undercoating once in a while)

Thanks,
Adam

Wow. Beautiful work there! Nice save.

But... is it just me, or is your cat installed upside down?

I think you're seeing it strangely. It'* actually that they're welding from beneath the car, and it'* jacked up above everyone.
