That is pretty typical, when we are at mod meets doing installs, I always make sure to look away when removing them from the car, I have had all kinds of things fall out when removing the stock ones.

I remember Dave @ mod 5 when you
took the old out. I could not believe how thin it was.
Left that junk there.

Now take some hi temp. silver paint and a art brush
and do the touch up around the tubo and engine.
You will not believe 15 min. of painting will look like.
