Hello i have finally got round to fitting my new manifold and full exhaust system, and after carefully arranging my tools i put spanner to bolt, and realized i haven't a clue what im doing!, so before i undertake this task has anyone got any useful tips on how to make this easier? or even things you've cocked up so i can try to avoid it??
Cheers!

its not that hard but when you havent got tools such as a ramp or pit, then its like almost impossible to do... 90% of any work on a car is having the correct tools

You can do it without a ramp or a pit a piece of piss. Get it jacked up put the axle stands under it and you will be fine. If you want even distribute the weight between the axle stands and the jacks.

There is plenty of room under the car to fit an exhaust.
