Nice, why didn't they put dual exaust on my car!? Then all I'd have to do is shine them up.

I used a crimped drill powered wirebrush wheel to knock off the thick carbon, then a dremel with 120 grit sand paper wheel to buff the rest of the minor stuff off. still have very lil spots, but it was getting dark so ill fix the rest today

Wow, that is a lot nicer looking. I remember I did that on the old SSEi. Made them shine up a little bit more.

If you want something that'* a little easier to use than those fiddly little sandpaper discs, try using a finishing abrasive buff. It'* like a little abrasive sponge, and it gets into all the little spaces and pits easily.
