Yeah, the stock heatshield sheet metal was not drilled with a full circle for that back bolt, it was a half circle so it was covering up half of the bolt hole. I was looking at it with a mirror. When I loosened the two bolts attached to the downpipe, I was able to pull the stock shield up enough so I could see the whole bolt hole and thread it in a little by hand. I am worried that it would have been an easy bolt to crossthread but it seemed to go in pretty smoothy so i am hoping it's ok if I ever need to take the bolt out again.
