All is good then, just need to get the hanger kit now. I was looking at some different forums and found one, don't remember which one, that had some exhaust installation tips. Make sure everything fits and then remove and then saw slots on either side of the muffler and or pipe connections and the clamps will tighten down better. Have you guys heard that being done? Kind of makes sense. The metal is pretty thick and I know Mark, Stingr69, said there was an issue there? As I stated before there were a ton of pics I found when I Googled images for Camaro exhausts and found plenty that have weld spots to hold the connections together.
