FML cometic gasket and friends dont mix

So I have been out of work because I had surgery on my should and a few buddies helped me out since I am in a sling and cant really torque things down. So the RB cometic exhaust gasket has two rivets on it, and OEM manifolds have a cutout, well my manifold does not and my buddy didn't notice and torqued it all down but the rivet ended up being pinched before a proper mating. So i fire up the beast today and yep..... major exhaust leak between 1-2 and 5-6, now it all has to come back apart so I can remove those rivets

Sorry to hear that mate, but those are the joys of DIY engine work I guess!

Wasn't the rivet, ended up being warped from modification and welding, pissed the fabricator didn't check it before sending it for ceramic. Not it's on it way to a machine shop then going back to coating.
