Rear Bumper Exhaust Grill 2 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 57
Well lads. Looking for opinions on this and if anyone has already done this i'd appreciate some pics

Thinking about removing the rear exhaust grill thing, the slatted piece of metal that hangs below the level of the rear bumper and shields the exhaust.

Looks like it can be bent up out of view, or cut off. I think it really shows off your exhaust system nicely, any opinions?

Am i missing something or does it have a function?

My understanding is that it's supposed to be a heat guard so that passers by are less likely to burn their legs on your muffler. In my view if you manage to get your legs that far underneath a running MR2 you have more to worry about than just burns!!

Some folks cut them off, others bend them up. Cutting it is more or less a one way street, unless you're handy with a welder.

thanks for the info Quandry!

Can't believe that's what it's for!

I have a dent/crease on one of my mufflers so if I can get that ironed out I might go ahead with removing the gaurd.

Any idea if it's possible for a panel beater to fix dents on an exhuast... I would imagine it would be difficult as the baffle would probably prevent it from being worked from the inside...

The previous owner cut the one on mine off ... I prefer having it on to be honest. GOT92Tubby kindly cut one from a car that he was scrapping, and there was enough left on mine to overlap the 2 and match up some pre-existing holes, a few bolts later .. sorted

I must be losing my mind Dan, the pic of your car was a pic of a Japanese man with a moustache the other day

I think it looks well (the car, not the moustache), so I'll probably end up doing it. Just need to get my exhaust sorted first
