This is one of my favorite body styles of Corolla. I remember seeing these everywhere when I was a kid, and I always feel nostalgic for them. I'll have one someday. Keep us posted.

Thanks. Will do. Btw, I tried to post a video clip of my exhaust but jnc wouldn't let me embed a clip within the post. Do you know how I could do so?

Never thought of putting the truck bed liner inside! Thats a great idea. I wonder if it weighs more now. Did you take the old tar/factory soundproof material off first or just apply it direct? Anyways great idea!
