Default Exhaust too short

Lads,

I bought a no-name back box for the car from micksgarage but the tip doesn't come out far enough to clear the back of the car, nor does it have the bend in it.

Should I send it back or would an exhaust fitter be able to weld a piece onto the end?

Not really interested in bling exhaust tips, but would that be an option?

This is what I get for trying to save a few quid, i know!

Ta
J.

image attached, if that works?

Is there not a longer pipe on the other side?

There's a full connection back on the other side, it's just the rear-most piece from the silencer that's short.

That looks very short for the end pipe in my opinion

Thanks lads. I'd resigned myself to sending it back anyway.

Happy Christmas!
