Default I finally did it

I finally got new tips after 3 months of searching, I could not find any place that had black chrome in stock. So I selected these Magnaflow Double walled, Rolled edge:
They look straight to me...I don't want to study them too much in case they are a fraction different... they spent some time with me finding the right spot for them...They welded around the bottom half of the tip. He said I could hang on them and they wouldn't come off.
I spent $97.00 for two from hotexhaust.com
Car X put them on for $39.00..At first he said $60.00, but then I "busted his balls" as he puts it and offered $39.00. I was happy.
(please look past the dirty car)

Nice! I think I may go with those when I upgrade if they fit. I'd be going with Magnaflow exhaust components anyway. Those look nice. I like the Magnaflow logo on the side.

They are not an exact fit, they are welded around the bottom and there is a gap around the top, but they won't come off, and the gap is not in sight.
