As an FYI Here's a pic of the tails I installed on 01/2009. As you can see the aluminizing holds up well, with the only thing getting ugly is the hangers, which I assume were made from mild steel, and rusted along with the welds.

Also as a note the ends facing the ground were the output that used to scrape on driveways and whatnot because the system hung below the quarter panels, and I used to have the Hotchkis springs in the back. Both of which have been replaced in my current setup.

Also remember the tail pipes are going to be part of the system that gets the most debris, and road junk sprayed on them. The aluminizing has held up well.

Try your best to ignore the rest of the junk that needs to make a trip to the recycler.
