    I waited all year to find the time to be able to complete this detailing task. I did the IRS Swap on my SN95 earlier this year. The IRS is complete 03/04 Cobra Spec. The exhaust is Magnaflow catback for 03/04 Cobra. I wanted to get the mirror finish. I followed the SVTP guide for the polished exhaust. Took me about a week woking 4 hours every day. The results were impressive. Totally changed the look of my car and I am so glad I spend the time to do it.

    The steps were

    3M Automotive Sandpaper
    -120 Grit Flap Wheel on Drill
    -100 Grit
    -320 Grit
    -400 Grit
    -600 Grit
    -1000 Grit
    -1500 Grit
    -2000 Grit

    -Mothers Metal Polish w/ Cotton Buffing Wheel on Drill
    -Chemical Guys Vintage Heavy Metal Polish w/ White Hexlogic Pad on Porter Cable 7424XP
    -Chemical Guys Vintage Metal Wax w/ White Hexlogic Pad on Porter Cable 7424XP
    -Chemical Guys JetSeal 109 *2 coats by hand*

    Those are the pipes of an angel. I can't even make eye contact with your pictures right now. Your pipes are like a combination of steel and Jesus.

    In all seriousness, your car with those pipes makes me want to go kick my car. That takes detailing to a whole new level. Super clean.

    I am a detailer. I did this on the side as my winter project. I feel it was well worth my time to get the look i want. Its called dedication.

    And the IRS Magnaflow catback actually sits higher in the chassis than my bassani SRA exhaust did.
