The only reason I monkied w/ it was to get the right side muffler from melting the bumper even more.

Yup, take it back. I had to take mine back cause the "H" was dripping condensation.
Any good shop will make it right for you.

Ok even I can tell that it's off. Yeah they have to fix it. Try and keep your mits off it the best you can and let them undo the damage.

I think a new GT/CS bumper might be in order for you. ^_^

Also, I'm absolutely in love with my duals, and contrary to everyone here, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the fact that they stick out further than the bumper. I had the local muffler guy do it for $130 on a friend's recommendation. Works like a charm. Professional welding, clean install (I was able to get directly underneath the car and join them.. it was cool) and NICE job cutting the bumper. I love the sound now.

And I helped them with their internet while I waited. ^_^

God speed getting it fixed right man. Looks horrible...

another reason i do all my own work. they should offer you some refund for having to go back and deal with their incompetence. if its a chain style garage theyll have a phone number you can call to file a complaint. we in the buisness call it the 1-800-getitfree hotline.

i had a midas do mine and the passenger side is hanging lower alittle, i took it back and he was like, well its the kit you bought its not good(JBA H and mid pipes)and said he had to bend the diver side of the H just a tad to get that side to even fit in the cutout. so i was like..."uhh if you were able to bend that side just enough to make it fit then why couldnt you bend the other side a bit so that it looks even from the rear, or maybe you bent the drvier side to much" then his only response was "it just wouldnt work". which i know is bull****. so when i get my headers on im taking it to a shop i know is good and should have went to in the first place and having them fix it
