Attn: Pete - Polishing Exhaust

I noticed that you had polished your exhaust and it looked great, this is a project I would like to undertake, but don't really have a clue where to start. It would be appreciated if you or someone who knows how, do a short write up or something outlining the steps involved. Thanks in advance guys!

Get some metal polish, a few cotton rags and a ton of elbow grease....

outtadaloop... yes the simple answer is metal polish and if you need to a very fine 'wet and dry' paper to remove the stains where the welds butt up, I did mine and the result of an afternoons rubbing was a huge improvment....yes and if you don't have a hugger, get one as it keeps the crap of the exhausts, and reduces the re polishing time

I use a little dremel for awkward corners.

Any thing I should look out for before I remove the Exhaust? Thanks for the pointers by the way!

Hey, John

It will be quite a bit of work. Start with 600 grid automotive sand wet/dry sandpaper and work it over. Follow with 800 grid then 1000 grid. From here you have a pretty decent polished finish. Now decide whether you would like a finer finish or not, if you do, hit it with 1200 grid then aluminum polisher with a buffer. Voila, mirror finish.
