Project Polish!
 
My headers are really bad looking. Blue and very discolored. Well I've started a project, project polish that is. I'm going around various metal surfaces such as the headers and tail pipe and polishing them. I have began a little bit of sanding on the tail pipe but because of the rain will not be able to get much done. I'll have pictures of when I am all done and keep you guys updated.

I finished sanding with 600 and then 1000 grit so far. Now I'll add metal polish accompanied with the 1000 grit then after washing that off, i will scuff it a bit more, and lastly do just polish with a buffer (powerball maybe?) or just a cloth. I'm not sure yet. I put the after picture first on accident lol.

my dad has ceramic coated headers on his charger and they even turned blue on the corners.
Nearly impossible to prevent...lol

Looking good though.

yeah lol you pay so much for them, then you'd try to clean em and anything on there would get burned off, and finger prints would be permanently burned on haha. So I'm going to make em look new again.

Headers look good so far. Need to do something about those wires and your low side A/C fitting cap is missing!
