I came here trying to locate the bestlinks for catalytic converter diagnostics, removal, and repair ...

Burning lacquer thinner in my engine scares me - but then watching the guy throw the cat into the bucket of soapy water got me thinking why he didn't soak the cats with the lacquer thinner itself?

Anyway, here's what I have (so far) for the bestlinks (not much to go on):
- How to remove & replace a catalytic converter (1) & how to fix rattling cat shields (1) & P0420 codes related to cats (1) (2) (3) & cat autopsy photos (1) & what kills cats (1) & an EPA fact sheet on catalytic converter warranties (1)
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
