I was interested in getting those myself. Is the amount of cutout variable? It appeared from what I could find that it was set somewhere between fully opened and fully closed. How low does it hang? I showed it to my local muffler shop, whose ownere also happens to own a GT and is very familiar with them, and his thoughts were that once you angled the cutoffs down away from the underside of the car, they'd be very low to the ground and vulnerable to damage.

OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.
