Right how would you guys run the exhausts here where the main rails meet the rear cross member under or over

Over or under the axle or the cross member?
I would always go over the axle for aesthetics, but why not go through the cross member if you are tight on space? Big holes with bigger tube welded in will not affect the strength.

Ross I was going to go over the axle but was asking about the crossmember in front So what you are suggesting is fitting 2 pieces of tube into the rear crossmember to allow the exhaust to pass through is that correct ?

hi mark
as ross says weld the tube into the crossmember and go through.done that on that mini.
if youre going above the axle do youre panhard first then route exhaust to suit.
you could go under.if you do, just do a couple of flanges in front of the axle so you can unbolt easy if you have to drop the axle
