Default 2000 Exhaust Tips

I got bored today and decided I wanted my exhaust tips to be a bit more noticeable.

Here'* the before:


I began with coarse sanding drum on an angle grinder:



Moved on to a burnishing pad:



Used a fine sponge sander to even out the tooling marks:



Went to a buffing wheel and resin on my Dremel:



All finished for now...




I think they stand out much better and have a distinct look. What do you think?

Disappointing thread title is disappointing.

I agree. Looks like I wasn't the only poor soul that opened this post expecting to see a pic of a bonneville that looked like it had a pipe organ in the back
