I took it back and they put in a different one one with a shape resembling a coffee can. It fit better but was not quiet like it should be. It was noisy and sounded cheap. I'm sure there are those on here that would like that, but I didn't. So here is my point. I ended up purchasing a genuine Toyota muffler that looks and sounds like the one that came with the car. My car sounds like new. When it comes to mufflers, I will now always recommend OEM.

Keep up the nice mods!
Thanks! Sticking with OEM is always safe, I noticed there were two styles of mufflers when I ordered mine too. I wanted it a little louder than stock so I ordered the aftermarket style. It fit well but I went with a brand I know, I'm sure there are other ones out there that would have worse fitment.

Great work mate. I've got to do something about the rust on my car. I'd be interested to see how the paint you used holds up. I have heard some horror stories of people using paint where the rust either comes through the paint or its still rusting away underneath the paint.

Thanks! Only time will tell. I've worked on a bunch of Toyotas and Subarus so I've seen a fair share of rust. It's to the point I refuse to use heavy coatings like POR-15 and rubberized undercoating because I've seen it become cancerous underneath the coating.
