    I would make them redo it, then stand there and watch them while they did it.

    You didn't watch them?? When I had mine done I was all over them...they can get pissed if they want but it's my damn money and my car. Bring it back and tell them to redo it....BTW if you brought it to midas that's why it's messed up.

    Wow, must be one hell of a shop to let a car leave looking like that.

    The good news is that it can be fixed. They can just cut it and reweld it, or add in a section of mild steel to extend it if need be. I would want to go back to the same shop because you already paid them, but damn, I'd be afraid of it looking even worse. Might want to just go somewhere else and call it a day.

    Your second pic shows clamps, it doesn't look welded. I installed mine myself. Get underneath and loosen all clamps and try to adjust it yourself. It will take a little time but it's worth it in the long run. A rubber mallet helps.

    You could back it up to a building and hit the gas to at least even up the tip lentghs.

    I tried that but it only seemed to destroy the bumper and not move the exhaust

    Took it back to the shop had them cut em off and reweld them and now all is good

    Did they move the passenger side pipe farther out when they fixed it? In the pics it looks closer to the license plate then the driver side pipe...that's what they did to mine but I was there and caught'em before they welded it.
