First job was to screw in the lambda probe into the cat.

Next job - getting the springs compressed over the mounts to secure the catalytic converter. After fiddling around trying to get the springs over with various pliers, long screwdrivers and so on, the best solution I could think of was to compress the spring using tie wraps. Worked a treat, the tie wraps held the springs in a compressed state and then it was easy to get the springs onto their hooks.
