    Long time since I have updated. Been driving the heck out of the car. Just basic maintenance. But I finally polished my exhaust!!


    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*

    Looks awesome but I don't even think I'd be able to get that outta my driveway with the exhaust that low!

    Exhaust looks good. How hard is the IRS swap? I'm looking into doing this myself

    actually the back of the exhaust is not the lowest point. My SRA exhaust exhaust was way lower than the IRS exhaust.

    Yeah, 9" all around. 275/40R17.
