540i e39 dual exhaust conversion (my conversion)

Hello all, I have been thinking of doing it but the thinking has got the best of me.
Last month I did the front and rear M5 bumpers with some other bells and whistles. When I got to the rear bumper having only one exhaust outlet was KILLING me. So much that I never installed the rear diffuser.
Today I cut the other outlet on the diffuser then got carried away. I took out the tape measure and started cutting a piece of sheet metal. I AM going to keep the full size spare in place. I did not finish the job BUT the sheetmetal is cut and ready to be welded in. The fabrication took a few hours but I think it's comin along fine.
Here are some progress Picts.

I plan on starting the welding and cutting the trunk on Monday.
