Anyone order an exhaust or wing lately?

I am in dire need of shipping boxes to send out my Z32 catback and test pipes.

I have an exhaust box that is way too beat up for the shipping company to take.

If you have a decent box or multiple boxes that could fit these, it's greatly appreciated.

Honestly, I would just call a few of the tuner shops around town. I'm willing to bet they have a couple boxes that they'd give you. Might just have to fish it out of their recycling bin lol.

I picked up a couple of trimmer boxes from the Stihl dealer.

Does anyone know if instead of boxing the exhaust I cut out the cardboard and form/wrap it around the exhaust, that they will take it like that? Or does it have to be box like?

It would be best to actually box the items and wrap the items in bubble wrap and add packing peanuts or other filler material to minimize damage while it's in transit. Depending on the shipping company, they will accept it wrapped in bubble wrap and cardboard but your parts will have a higher chance of being damaged and dented. For example the tips could become oval and your buyer will end up complaining.

I was able to source an extra invidia exhaust box and fit everything in there.

I did bubble wrap every part of the exhaust. It's nice and comfy in there.
