Stock exhaust and body kit...

I sent my body kit to get painted today and i'm a little worried about my stock gt exhuast. is it going to leave marks on my newly painted bumper since the muffler tip isn't as far out as the bumper? I won't be able to buy the TRD exhaust for some time...what should i do?

Extended tips/exhausts with body kits are merely for looks.

Nothing will happen to your bumper. The stock exhaust will just look bad with your kit.

if ur stock exhaust is hittin the bumper, then you have to worry, if its not then dont worry a bout it, think of this way, wen you have ur stock bumper you dont see no black shit on it, right thats becuase ur exhaust is not touching ur bumper, so if it dont touch it ur fine thumbsup

If it's near your bumper, crawl underneath, pull it down a bit, and stick a small rock in the rubber mount. That will lower it a bit for now. Kinda ghetto, no REALLY ghetto. grin

thanks guys. I talked to the body shop today the people that are paintin my kit and they said it will be fine as long as it doesn't touch the bumper and that i pay attention to it. So if it starts to stain just wipe it off now and then
