Polished up the mufflers tonight. After 2 and a half years it's still looking real good.

Here it is when I installed it.



Today. After polishing.

Looking good.

I'm leaning towards the RB exhaust myself.

I went from the Racing Beat to the AP system... for the sound I was looking for, the AP is awesome. . . but seeing these pics of the polished tips makes me miss the RB. The single walled tips of the AP just scream rice. . . but i'll still rock it.

Ugh. The worst thing you could use, and if your exhaust got to that point you should be shot. Lol!

second: after doing some searching ppl are saying that the rims are painted surfaces. i just bought some black magic cleaner can i use that?

and one last thing doesn't belong in this section but everytime i have my car in neutral and step off the clutch, there is a rattling noise. does anyone else have this problem?

thanks for all the help!

guys, wax the exhaust tips after you cleaned them, much easier to keep them clean.

When I bought mine, I thought the exhaust was painted black, I cleaned it and it didn't change colour, then I noticed the underneath was chrome so using some 000 grade wire wool and some autosol I polished the tips and they are now as good as new and very shiny

Here's my 2004 oem exhaust with about 60K miles on it. Took me 10mins to clean them. They only got that dirty because a friend was using my exhaust for awhile.

Josh I'm pretty sure your RB is more polished now than when you first got it, lol. Great work.
