Every single stud unscrewed from the head with no problem at all.
The cloud is there because these exhausts were originally made for a vn classic so I had to space the footboards out to make them fit tidy. Turns out that every time I ground them on a corner I bent the 3" long bolts a tad, BOTH the buggers snapped off flush with the frame.
Oh well at least I can get a file and a drill on them. I've got a couple or three hours before it gets dark.
Just goes to prove, it's not always the obvious that trips you up......
