Just the Tip

Ever since buying the car, I have been annoyed by the exhaust tip.  It sticks out at a slightly odd angle and it has a straight cut on it.  It looks unfinished.  That had to change.
I started by removing the identification plaque, that was welded oddly close to the outlet.

I then used a rubber band to visualize the angle of cut I wanted and traced the line.

I tried a number of different tools for the cut, but eventually settled on the good old fashioned hack saw.  I didn't quite follow the line, but it came out great.
The last step was to drill a hole for the silencer to be secured to.
