Getting ready for the upcoming trips: new muffler installed

The Ansa muffler that came on my car was "sporty" but droned on long drives. It kind of reminded me of the sound from a late 60's MB 230SL (only louder). In anticipation of this year's trips to the V@V and the Pittsburgh Vintage GP, I decided to go back to stock.

A new tii muffler and chrome tip sourced from Blunt was installed yesterday. It looks and sounds much better.

Before installing it, I used 3M adhesive remover to get the sticker and tape remnants off, then lightly scuffed up the factory primer with a Red Scotch-brite pad. Eastwood's PRE cleaner was used with a rag then 2 coats of their S/S exhaust paint was brushed on to match my existing resonator.

Is my chrome tip pushed on too far? How do you know how far to tap it on?

I don't know what the "correct" installation for the tip is, but I try not to push them on any farther than necessary to keep them on. This seems to help keep all the crap that comes out of the tailpipe off the rear bumper chrome.

Your car is really nice. Stock exhaust looks great.

I want to get a pic of it at V@V with my car, which rolled off the line 400 cars after yours.
