How did you disconnect the exhaust or fit the back primaries from the top side?

Here's a write-up, working from the bottom. It was nice having a friend to help from the top side.

I left the downpipe attached to the exhaust system and just reached in and bolted it back up to the rear header. I'm not sure... It worked lol maybe don't listen to me because I may not be thinking straight though.

The original downpipe design is easiest to do from the top and bottom. The passenger side bolt is easiest from up top, while the drivers side was easiest from the bottom (at least for me anyways).
