"Extra Parts" Installed

Last year when I put the new stock exhaust system on the car I was left with two extra bits. Honestly, I didn't even know what they were. I finally did the research this week and discovered the two identical pieces were exhaust hangers, one for each side of the muffler.

Come to find out that a previous owner had hung the muffler with lengths of fan belt or similar, a fact I didn't realize until I looked for myself.

Now the correct parts are installed on the car and ought to last the duration of my ownership.

As they say, there's no such thing as extra parts.
