Tail pipe Sleeve

My wife is slowly getting her new (to her) 2001 Focus SE Sport up to spec and saving for her mods. Haha..because of you guys she's become a Focus Fanatic. She is bugging me to get a Magnaflow installed (which would have been sooo out of character for her a couple of months ago) but it just isn't in the budget for a few months. Anyhow, the rusty looking tailpipe was really bugging her so as a temporary measure I just got one of those chrome sleeves to slide over it for 5 bucks.

It has two fastening screws on the underside and I was wondering if you are just supposed to fasten them hand tight or if you are supposed to actually pierce the tailpipe with the screws and screw them in flush.

I just have them tightened hand tight right now but the screws seem too long and stick out a fair ways which look sorta dumb from a low angle. This made me think maybe they are to go right thru the pipe? Anyone know offhand?

Thanks.

There not supposed to go threw it. I only ever used the screws to put tension on the pipe. How about if you grind down the screws or dremel (cut off wheel) the screws?

I haven't put one on mine yet, but I have done it with other cars in the past.. You definately don't want to pierce it, but you do want it as tight as possible without piercing it. I have had one or two fly off the damn car because I didn't fasten it enough. =)

Hey wgb! Check my post I made the other day. I was lucky and got a chrome extension that is a "force fit" and didn't need the 2 screws that came with it. It looks like the pipe is chromed from the muffler out and there is no hardware showing. Chrome Exhaust Pipe Extension
