Might have just done something a bit heroic...
Changed out the front downpipe from the Wizard decat piece to the original cat.... Without lifting the front of the car....
Driveway is sloping tarmac - no good for jacking
Parking space is gravel - no good for jacking
Garage is concrete but full of furniture - no space for car
Managed it parked up on the gravel... Lots of swearing, severe spanner rash on the knuckles, sooty and dirty from playing with the exhaust, but it's done.... No leaks (at least nothing I could spot with a quick snoop about), and MOT ready for next weekend... Though I have a feeling that the Tyre & MOT shop it's booked in with are gonna tell me in needs new tyres as well!
100% would not recommend trying it without lifting - it takes twice as long, and you end up more than twice as hurt and dirty...
The thought of doing that again to put the Wizard back in makes me shudder... Could be persuaded to part with the decat pipe right now I reckon!
