HAHAHAH, I just did that this past weekend. Nevermind the fact that the muffler was also bent up a bit from the previous owner running something over. It's so much easier to clean the exhaust tip. Plus, I DD my car.....no car shows for me.

Still, to the original write-up. DAAAYYAMAAMMM. that looks sweet.

that is one hell of a job. For those asking how, all it takes is spending enough time going from a coarser (800 grit) to a finer (2000 grit) sand paper to a finer (2500 grit) and then working with some metal polish. It just takes a lot of time.

I've done exactly that in the past. The before and after in the OP makes my hands hurt just thinking about it, nice work though!

You know, the first thing I thought when I saw this, is that is the worst design ever for an exhaust... then I figured the car must be mid-engined LOL
