Default My new used muffler arrived last night.....Now, what tips??

Hey guys, I got a great deal on a magnaflow muffler from ebay. A guy in Cali had it on his camaro for a month and said it wasn't loud enough so he went to a flow and I got the muffler for 40 bucks shipped! It looks almost new to me.

Now, what tips should I put on?? Also I was thinking, and tell me your thoughts.......What if I spaced the way out the side like an 80'* lx mustang with stainless tips just barely sticking out? Cool or not?

I had a local shop weld up the muffler and the tips and also fix a bent main exhaust pipe from the resonator to the muffler, and all told it cost me like $200, but everything is expensive in the Bay area here in California, so anywhere else I'd figure it should cost anywhere between that and half that.

Whatever you do, keep your main pipes because they're all stainless.

Okay, but the Ractive tips aren't black. If they look that way, it'* just the lighting in the photo. They're 304 stainless and look nice and shiny, like polished chrome. There aren't any black ones. That'* what I was trying to get across.

Oh, well, I guess I miss read, the picture in the link you have showed a black one as well, in any event, I will just get the ones you have. My only concern now is if I should weld or clamp the tail pipes on because I am going to be getting a hitch for this car soon and I am affraid that I might need to remove some of the exhaust to get it on.
