not really what I had in mind! Just smooth the tip over with a bit of cloth/paper towel.. no effort needed, then just bin it!
For a handy quicker than metal polish fix, get a tube of scratch removing stuff and leave it in the car, then if your out and it look shitty, you can clean it off then and there!

it's wrong to believe stainless systems wouldn't rot away... the internal stuff in your backbox is everything else then stainless... means you can't even see, when it's time to replace the system...
I cant remember exactly how long but I got a 5yr (at least) gaurentee with my backbox. I know Playmini is 20 years... more often than not the materials inside the backbox will not rot. It would be pointless to have a s/s rear box that rotted from the inside while you are unaware. I guess it would be sensible to replace it every 5 years or so... or with a s/s one just use something like redex to flush out the system.
but it's okay for the centre pipe (as long as you have a single box system
Yes I do, more noise, mwhaha, as its not a twin silencer!

If you can bear to wait, leave it for a while and put on the whole stage one kit in one go, then you'll really notice the performance hit

yep that whats i have on my cooper single box but i have the rolled tip
I am getting the s/s 1.75" RC40 backbox(the non rolled tip type) and also getting rid of the intermediate silencer and replaceing it with a link pipe, Bill Richards says it should add a couple of BHP!!!!!!!!!

and for the stage one kit... always try to change exhaust side and inlet side at the same time if possible... it does not really make that much sense only to treat either the one side or only the other...
